It would go against what they have been looking for. Word is that so far the new ownership has approached:

Bob Nicholson - President of Hockey Canada
Someone within the Canadiens organization (name slips my mind.)
Ivan Fecan - CEO of CTV

Word is that all three have turned it down, so maybe a change of direction?

I'm a Leafs fan, unfortunately. I would rather have Sundin as President of the Leafs than 99.

Exactly.

Good idea marketing wise, but just don't let him be General Manager.

OR!

It could be a post signifying the anticipation of a long line of posts hating on Hockey.

Therefore, Cue the queue of posts hating on Hockey.
