It’s official! Well, it’s actually not official until Thursday, but it’s official enough to be excited about it. If you don’t know what it is, look here.
Mr. Pegula is finally taking over the reigns of this misguided hockey team and hopefully he can right the wrong and steer them in the direction that so many fans feel they need to go. If you’re expecting them to clear house, I would think again. There is no doubt that there is some dead weight hanging on this lifeless team, but to make drastic changes mid-season is just simple bad practice. I personally don’t expect Darcy being back for another year and I have no doubt that we may see several new faces next season, but other than a typical deadline move, nothing more should be expected.
I want to warn you all here though, the sale doesn’t mean that Mr. Pegula will be taking over the operations immediately, there is still a lot of red tape before it is finalized.
