With the Phoenix Coyotes case still sitting with Judge Baum, Jim Balsillie is hoping that an interview Eugene Melnyk did with Bob McCown on Prime Time Sports will help prove a material point that is in dispute with the NHL. According to the Canadian Press, on September 17th, “he noted that he’s not allowed to schedule an exhibition game for the Senators at his OHL team’s arena in Mississauga, Ont., because it falls in Toronto’s territory.”
Now,if there is no territorial rights why would Melnyk say that on national radio here in Toronto? I am not making the argument however the Judge will evaluate it.
Fascinating to say the least……
