If Jeremy Rutherford's report on STLToday.com is accurate, former Phoenix Coyotes suitor Matthew Hulsizer should start figuring out what to send to the bumbling Glendale City Council and the persistent Goldwater Institute watchdogs as a heartfelt "thank you."
Does Edible Arrangements have a "thanks for saving me from a potential money pit so I can purchase the St. Louis Blues" fruit display? Does Hallmark make that card; and if so, does it play "When the Saints Go Marching In?"
From Rutherford, news that Hulsizer has a verbal agreement with Dave Checketts to purchase a majority stake in the Blues:
Two of the sources said that Checketts has signed a letter of intent and believe the deal is with Hulsizer, although one source indicated that it's a verbal agreement and is far from being completed. The deal is not considered binding and would not become official until the two sides enter a purchase agreement and it's approved by the NHL.
