I had to read the headline twice to make sure it wasn’t a typo, but apparently the NHL is looking to have MSG removed as owner of the New York Rangers. MSG sued the NHL last September, claiming that when the league took over promotional efforts for the Rangers they violated antitrust laws. So league commish Gary Bettman went mushroom cloud on MSG in retaliation and wants to kick them out.
I didn’t see his name listed in the article, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see that James Dolan is involved in this somehow. Sorry Knicks fans, I searched Google and I didn’t find anything about the NBA trying to duplicate the NHL’s efforts. If anything, Dolan would have more time to focus on the Knicks if he lost the Rangers. Scary.
