Heywood Jablomi TSN reporting.
Sept 3/09 – Today in Phoenix, Judge Redfield T. Baum handed down a ruling saying that Jim Balsillie was not an acceptable bidder for the Phoenix Coyotes franchise. However he also ruled that the NHL had violated anti-trust law, and was awarding an expansion team to the Blackberry Billionaire to begin play immediately for the upcoming 09/10 season in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
The NHL immediately refused to hold an expansion draft and required the team to be filled up with UFA players. Wasting little time Mr. Balsillie called up his close and dear friend Hoop27 to put together an NHL roster for the upcoming season using the salary numbers from the UFA’s last contracts.
