Report: NHL tells bidders it wants Reynolds as Senators minority owner - The Score
The NHL apparently envisions Reynolds documenting the sale of the club with his production company Maximum Effort, and league marketing executives admit they can’t buy the kind of publicity he can generate.
I think Ryan Reynolds is a really good guy, but this kind of attitude is exactly the kind that invites grift into ownership. Of course, this is also the league that got all buddies up with Boots del Baggio and Jerry Moyes (and let’s face it, Melnyk himself wasn’t exactly a stellar owner).
