Here is who we have confirmed so far and people that have interest:Arpiar -----MapleLeafspoker.....ConfirmedZach.........The Zach------------ConfirmedAdam-------While Adam lives in Upstate new york he has said he can make itOttawa Biatch.....Dan lives in Ottawa but will be here for the draft(right Dan)J.P.-----------------John is a good friend of ours for a long time, and Daniel has said ok to himJohn Untilted------John lives in New York, but is willing to travel to Toronto once a yearI strongly support all of these people as I have known them personally and can vouch for their character and integrity.I am not sure how many spots we have left but these are the people that will be good additions IMO.The one thing we need to clear up is who will get what team and how this will be determined. The only issue I have is its not fair for a "newcomer" to come in to the league and automatically have a better team than most.I would like to see the existing teams dissolved and the players all become free agents. Existing teams get a crack in order from worst to first.While this maybe be complicated i think its fair...While I love all the guys that are coming into the league, I think its not fair if Zach(for example) has a better team than a guy that has been in the league 3 or 5 years.Just my two cents.
I think it's already been decided that the new owners will get the available teams and which teams they get will be done by a random draw. They will have all the same draft picks, money etc that those teams had.To do anything else just isn't practical and I think this is the most fair way to be honest.Anybody who Serge hasn't mentioned who is interested should let their interest be known. Serge's list is not definitive but pretty safe to say that Zach, Arp and J.P. will have teams and Gruven if he can confirm that he is covered for the draft but will have to confirm that pretty soon I would think as the decisions will have to be made very quickly.
