08:26 AM ET 08.13 | No matter the state of the game, it's going to be a good week for Minnesota's big-ticket signings. [The Wild] have to pay $10 million bonuses by Saturday, Aug. 18, to each of the star free agents they signed in July, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. With those bonuses due, a little birdie says, virtually all of the Wild's 11 limited partners last week agreed to commit to a total capital call of $10 million. Principal partner Craig Leipold is expected to fund the remaining $10 million. ... If there is a NHL lockout -- the league's labor contract expires Sept. 15 -- Wild investors could be asked to commit to another cash call. That could occur as early as November.

No, but there's been a sighting of Elvis and Michael Jackson strolling through the Mall of the Americas over the weekend.

You're right. They are Falked for a total of $20 million. Even the players should be able to see why the owners are asking for such concessions. (Sarcasm)

Maybe. I feel like I need a drink already!

These smart, wise business men now need the players to save them from themselves. But, it's the players who are greedy cos the owners are throwing money at them.

I don't think anybody here is a fan Phantom. I left a Columbo reference (albeit a bit crytic) on the Canes thread and nobody replied.
