London Nationals For Sale

Post by RocketGirl »

Nats owner Ken Eansor has decided to put the team up for sale and hopes they will be sold before the season starts.

he did a great job. Price likely too high but someone will pay. Cheaper to obtain a CIHL or GMHL franchise.

:smt006 wonder if the possibility is there that the Hunters would buy them and start their own farm team for the knights???

Doubt it, they had that when they owned Petrolia and it didn't work out. It is easier and cheaper for them to place their prospects that don't make the big squad with junior teams in their home towns.

I don't see the Hunters buying another team, but if they did, I think it'd be Lambton Shores and they'd move them back to Petrolia. But I think they realize that wouldn't be successful because they have draft picks from all over, and what kid from the GTA wants to go to Petrolia?

Anyone think they could be bought and moved to Dorchester?
