The best possible ownership situation, obviously, is a very wealthy individual, like Cuban or Allen, who is passionate about the sport and winning. But a rich communications giant, either Bell or Rogers, would still be much better than a pension fund - a pure bottom-line-oriented owners.

As far as I remember, Larry Tanenbaum still has the right of first refusal to buy the outstanding shares of MLSE should they become available. I wonder if he is looking to team up with some other individuals and take over the organization, 'cause that would have been the best possible outcome for the teams and their fans.
