possible announcement next week, CVS/AETNA Headquarters, Ottawa Senators ??

Recommended Posts

With the recent news that the Mayor of Ottawa wants nothing to do with publicly **nding a new arena for the Senators, and the Owner of the Senators voicing his intention to relocate the Team, it wouldn't surprise me if Aetna (a long-time sponsor of the NHL during their prime) will try to make a pitch for the Senators.

Why next week ?   Easy answer, Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont is making a pitch to be our next Governor, and don't be surprised if Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin tries to steal the spotlight suddenly, and we know it was exactly a year ago that Bronin and Malloy made a pitch to the Islanders, don't be surprised if Bronin and Ottawa owner Eugene Melnyk are talking behind the scenes, Governor Malloy is pumping millions of dollars into the XL Center, and Aetna will be remaining in Hartford, it seems like the calm before the storm for something big to happen.

All I know is, is that my sources inside the XL Center are telling me that stuff is going on behind the scenes, the Governor has made it very well known that there are numerous rich investors waiting to get their hands on a team, don't be surprised if the University of Connecticut could also be involved in this deal, as this new campus in Hartford can be easily attached to the XL Center and perhaps UConn could then lease the XL Center to the Senators (the new Whalers) and thus UConn would be receiving lease payments and the Ottawa owner would be receiving essentially a new arena, since there have been so many recent renovations, a new ice sheet, and another $40 million will be spent on the arena very soon.

Hint:  there is a reason why there is a new parking garage going up near Bushnell Park

Michael W. Freimuth, Executive Director, Capital Region Development Authority, talks about the development on the parking lots near The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford. The story focuses on a plan for building a 350-space parking garage on the site of the old state laboratory building on Clinton Street. If built, the parking garage would free up the parking lot just east of the State Office Building (at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Washington streets) for mixed use development. Bringing housing and commercial development to the area has long been envisioned to replace the barren sea of parking lots and stitch together downtown with the neighborhoods to the south.

Any guesses as to who the rich investors may be? 

The Governor and his inner circle know, as well as key folks at the NHL, and in due time, the public will know, probably after the deal gets done.

PRESS CONFERENCE IN OTTAWA TOMORROW, THURSDAY, January 25

boys, this is big

Rumor is Ottawa Senators and National Capital Commission are expected to make announcement about Senators' negotiations with National Capital Commission to secure land in Ottawa's Lebreton Flats neighborhood for new arena for the NHL team. Lebreton Flats is a neighborhood right next to downtown Ottawa. Once a land agreement is in place, then Senators owners Melnyk can start organizing financing for arena and other parts of big development he has planned for Lebreton flats neighborhood.

Yep. It looks like Senators and National Capital commission have come up with an "agreement in principle". I bet that's what gets announced tomorrow.
