"North of 20 million."


Which to me means they won't be leaving town for a smaller arena. You need to sell lots of tickets, beer and advertising to justify that purchase price.

Check your email if you want to read the statement from the Burkes.

"Pending the approval of the OHL Board of Governors,"

Can't believe the OHL is cool with the team with the 4th best attendance leaving the Region. Or perhaps its all wishful thinking on my part.

After 15 years, it is with mixed emotion to announce that we have decided to move on. It was one of the greatest joys of our lives to be able to bring major junior hockey back to the Niagara Region and see our fan base flourish as you all embraced us. Our earliest memory of moving to Niagara was when setting up our first office on Queen Street, a lovely woman popped in and welcomed us to the area, but also added that we would be bankrupt in 5 years because "people in this community don't support their sport teams." Well did you prove her wrong! And not surprisingly, that same woman became one of our long-standing ushers until the day she passed away.

We are proud of the brand that we have built here, and the relationships that have been forged in the community. One of our main goals was to make a difference in the Niagara Region through our charitable endeavors and our hope is that in that we have succeeded.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and friendship over the years and look forward to seeing how far this young team will go! We will be cheering them on along side all of you!

With all our very best,

Bill and Denise Burke

GO DOGS GO!!!

Nothing in the quote says the team is leaving, just that it is being sold.
