Oops, he's done it again....

Yup folks, Katz is offering to buy the Oilers again. Although this time, he's shooting for the pie, not a piece. I am majorly in favor of this, and hope the EIG takes the offer. In my mind, one owner is better than 30. This guy has the money, has the profile, has the business sense to take this team and make it not only profitable (which it has become recently. Did it make money last year...does anyone know? The previous year it obviously did owing to the huge playoff run) but also successful.

I'm heading out of town today for three weeks. I probably won't be hearing too much hockey news in England or Ireland, but I hope to return to new ownership!!!!!

I'm not sold on this yet. I don't like the idea of one person owning the team. I'd like to hear more of his ideas before I decide either way, though.

I hope you have a great trip!

Meet any hockey fans in the UK? By that I mean Oiler fans, of course.

I would love one wealthy hometown owner. I think it's a smart move.

Actually, I did meet some Irish who maybe weren't hockey fans but knew about the game and the Oilers. It was cool to talk hockey with some of them. Of course, I had to reciprocate and listen to their soccer talk. lol
