Gee, I wonder which.
EXCLUSIVE: Both teams in Stanley Cup finals (New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings) are for sale – NYPOST.com
Philip Anschutz-controlled AEG Corporation, […] and its CEO Tim Leiweke, have started marketing the team by directly calling suitors, a source told The Post yesterday.
A few years ago, the Kings first put themselves up for sale seeking more than $200 million, sources said, but now likely will accept less, the source added.
Sure, because last November, the Kings were valued at $232 million, and have been growing in value 4% per year on average (8% last year), and all that was before they found themselves in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Leiweke told The Post, “We are getting approached by a few people now due to our success, the Dodgers value and the roll LA Live […] is on.”
While offers have come in, Leiweke denied he was peddling the franchise. “Nothing to it [sale rumors],” he said.
Still, a source maintains that Leiweke was the approacher — and not the approached — recently and that the CEO came forward with a sales book on the Kings.
An NHL spokesperson called the report of a Kings sale “categorically untrue.”
The Kings are expected to make “a major announcement” next week, according to a person familiar with the team, but the subject could not be learned.
Expected by whom? I hate quotes that come from nowhere and say nothing.
