Investment, Roles In Group Could Change
WELCOME CHANGE: In Ft. Lauderdale, Dave Hyde wrote Bettman was "in town to oversee what he called a 'restructuring' of the ownership and, whatever that means, it can't be bad news." South Florida "can support a hockey team better than a baseball team." When the Panthers "put a good product on the ice a decade ago, the season-ticket base was over 10,000 and they went a few years of selling out Miami Arena." But Hyde wrote the team now is the "anti-Marlins." Though the Panthers "spend money," they "just have no consistent plan." Hyde: "This ownership change, where it sounds like Cohen will take a smaller role, has to be a good thing" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 10/11).
