But you're cool with Terry, even though the same is true of him? Gotcha. By the way, how do you know what experience Kim has or doesn't have?
Shill much Promo? No I'm not cool with Terry. He has succeeded in business on his own but is an inarticulate butcher when it comes to being a sports owner. He needs someone with experience to manage it for him and stay out of it. He can't find one. He can't decide. Does anyone know of any experience that Kim Pegula has in hockey? Anything outside of Uncle Terry; apparently not. She's been with him since age 22. Marrying Terry and working in his businesses IS her business experience. She's an opportunist. She hasn't forged anything independently of him. Probably a similar situation with Trump with Ivanka and Kushner, and Bill Clinton with Hillary, except Trump and Clinton got elected and Terry bought this. This appears to be pure nepotism. If they want to run an organization based on this, I don't agree with it...that's me. She's completely inappropriate for the influence that she has. And she is not a person to be looked up to and neither is Terry. They need to find someone who knows what they're doing and step back. If we need the NHL to make that decision, so be it.
I have far more respect for women who forge their own path, whatever their lot in life, rather than those who glom onto Richie Rich.
btw Out of curiosity, anyone know the name of Pegula's first wife....has she passed away? He had two children with her...
Not sure if I said it in this thread or another, but what does Jeremy Jacobs know about hockey? What did George Steinbrenner know about baseball? What did Eddie deBartolo know about football?
Seriously, owners who know their sport are the tiny exception and not the rule.
Jacobs' family owned the AHL champion Buffalo Bisons. Steinbrenner owned a team in the old ABL (American Basketball League) in 1960. Sure he became the gorilla in the room but the good ones know how to budget, step back and manage and that's what these successful owners have done.
