Are the New Jersey Devils Bankrupt?

Several news outlets reported that the Devils missed a September 1 deadline to pay bank lenders $100 million and may be forced into bankruptcy. The team vehemently denies this but for fun’s sake, let’s pretend that the Post actually got a story right for once. This isn’t the first time there’s been financial problems in New Jersey.

The owners of the Devils are probably too busy buying hair gel and doing their laundry to pay back their debts. They built this fancy new arena in glamorous downtown Newark thinking they would get all the grenades they could ever want, but they forgot that nobody cares about the Devils. Even worse, the NBA is locked out and the Nets are moving to Brooklyn next year anyway. It’s a good thing they signed Ilya Kovalchuk to a 10-year contract because anytime you can lock up a guy for a decade who can lead your team to an 11th place finish, YOU HAVE TO DO IT! Who thought it was a good idea to build a hockey-only arena in New Jersey anyway?
