Now that Groupon has gotten rid of its quirky founder and CEO, the chief question is whether the company's underlying online deals business is promising enough to reverse its falling stock price, declining revenue growth and waning consumer interest.
Struggling online deals pioneer Groupon has fired its quirky founder and CEO, Andrew Mason, amid worries that people are tiring of the restaurant, spa and Botox deals that Groupon built its business on.

To many basketball fans, the Washington Wizards will always be the Washington Bullets. Appearing on a local radio station on Friday, team owner Ted Leonsis gave those holdouts hope.
As fans cloaked in red streamed into Verizon Center on Tuesday night, for at least a little while it didn't feel like the Washington Capitals were playing a mid-January game against the Winnipeg Jets.
Ted Leonsis was up-front about being "thrilled" with the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement, based on it being a "system where all 30 teams and all 30 fan bases feel that their team can qualify for the playoffs and win a Cup."
Around the National Hockey League, those plugged in to collective bargaining talks seemed to take owners' stances and questionable offers more personally than others.
Ted Leonsis denied the idea that he was a "hardliner" during collective bargaining negotiations and said the NHL lockout was worth it for the changes that came from it.
With the lockout over and training camps set to begin Sunday, the league and its players begin the task of trying to bring fans back. For the Capitals and many teams, fans will return, but the harm done to the NHL's reputation is hard to ignore.
John Wall could be making his season debut Saturday for the Washington Wizards after months of rehabbing his injured left knee.
Examining and evaluating one's self is routine when calendars flip from one year to the next. Folks think about some desired behaviors and make a determination to achieve them during the next 12 months.
If John Wall isn't ready about a month from now, midway through the schedule, the Washington Wizards probably should keep him sidelined for the season.
His nightly walk toward the tunnel is slow. His head is down, his body language unmistakable. This was supposed to be his year to break through, to lead his team out of mediocrity and into the playoffs. His chance to have his name spoken alongside the Celtics' Rajon Rondo, the Thunder's Russell Westbrook, the Clippers' Chris Paul.
My favorite part of the latest CBA proposal by NHL owners is the word "mutual." As in: The deal will be for six years, with a "mutual option" for a seventh. Given the increasingly strained relations between the two sides, it's hard to imagine them mutually agreeing on much of anything — now or then.
A year ago, owner Ted Leonsis said another appearance in the lottery would be "unacceptable."
Owner Ted Leonsis said during the television broadcast of Wednesday season-ending loss to the Chicago Bulls that the team will see what it can do to keep Wall "for a long, long time."
