In what can only be deemed as mysterious circumstances, the much hyped launch of the Delaware Lighting has vanished.
After shopping for, and making offers on franchises in three separate leagues over the summer. The self promoting, masterful adviser Charlie Pens settled on purchasing the Delaware Lighting.
Assembling what was likely the largest Front Office in Tier III hockey history, must have taken a lot of time. See staff here.
It must have taken so much time to assemble such an incredible collection of talent that everyone forgot they needed to recruit a team to actually have a team. You know, like signing some players to actually take the ice and play?
Multiple sources are reporting that the world class front office lead by the self styled expert adviser, could only recruit between six and eight players throughout the entire summer. Yes, you read that correctly, between six and eight players.
Only one word can describe this effort in Delaware. Pathetic.
The good news?
Yeah well there isn’t any good news. This shit show was doomed from the start. When you try to start a team by nickel and diming every league, its usually a pretty good sign that you are only working with nickels and dimes. Not exactly how they write up a plan to start any business.
But hey, on a positive note, the Delaware Lightning are only the first to be declared dead on the scene this week. We got us about two dozen more on life support. Who will survive and who wont?
