Preds Sold…Freakin Blackberry!

I am shocked. I am. But not at all surprised. Perhaps I should have taken what Trump says to heart…”trust no one.” Even as Leipold would repeat, time after time, that he had no intention of moving the franchise somewhere deep inside I did not entirely believe him. Don’t get me wrong I am not sitting here telling you that I saw this coming because I didn’t…no one did. NO ONE!

What does it all mean? Well that has yet to be decided. The only thing we can hope for is that the league puts in place a list of stipulations similar to that of the Pittsburgh deal which would require Jim Balsillie (CEO of the company behind Blackberry) to keep the team here for a certain number of years (a deal in Pittsburgh fell through when the league was going to require him to keep the team there for seven years regardless if a deal on a new arena was reached). My gut tells me though that he has talked to the league already and doesn’t foresee those stumbling blocks.

Right now this is all unclear. Perhaps it will become clear at the press conference scheduled for today. Right now it’s all fuzzy…kind of like the morning after that party freshman year in college when you woke up in a strange room with an awful taste in your mouth…you know what I’m talking about right?

I knew there was a reason I went with my TREO!!!
