Video: Devils owner Jeff Vanderbeek talks about team’s off-ice issues

Jun 1, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

The New Jersey Devils have been a huge success this season, but things haven’t been going quite as smoothly financially. New Jersey reportedly has $80 million in debt that they’re working on refinancing. In addition to that, minority owner Ray Chambers is interested in selling his 47% stake in the team.

Still NHL commissioner Gary Bettman recently said that progress is being made.

Devils owner Jeff Vanderbeek also took the time to talk about the team’s situation on and off the ice. You can take a look at what he had to say below:

    Say what you want about Newark. No matter how many improvements are made to the city, unfortunately it will never shake its bad reputation, but the Prudential Center is one of the best arenas I’ve ever been to. Jeff is a classy guy. Not at all a high-class high-falutin’ huckster or hustler.

      Its unfortunate, the VERY immediate area surrounding the arena is decent, but right or wrong, the vibe of the city is that if you venture more than a block away from the Prudential Center, you’re putting yourself at risk.
