The Latest on the Phoenix Coyotes Sale

Phoenix Coyotes - Could this be true?

Looking more and more like a done deal. Can you believe it. If so, next up in the “deal with it” department, the New York Islanders. People of Quebec City and Seattle are not happy with this news for sure… don’t scoff at the idea of expansion in two years though. I wouldn’t be surprised… and to those who say, “Expansion?! With what talent?”, I answer you with another question, “Do you honestly think the league or the NHLPA give a puck about that?”

Phoenix Coyotes sale could be finalized next week – Phoenix Business Journal

Yet another “breaking news” story from the “PHX sale”. The more I read about the City Council and the Goldwater institute, the less I think this is a “close to done” as some think.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the sale were to be “completed”, but then Glendale and the Goldwater boys just throw more roadblocks up. If that happened, I think the NHL would close the book on the NHL/PHX story, and either one of two things would happen:

- The Jamison group would back out (and another group would swoop in quickly and buy and move the team)

- The Jamison group would still buy the team (a little later), with a plan in place to move the team to a new city with a cushy arena deal.

Hockey Strangelove or: How I Learned to Spite the NHL and Love the Coyotes – The Copper & Blue

 

I have to say as a Leaf fan (doesn’t matter), a Stars fan (matters), and an NHL fan (really matters)… I’m intrigued by the whole Phoenix debacle. Again, for the record (despite the frequency with which I kill the Coyotes in the NHL Realignment Project, I would love for them to survive and thrive.

Derek Zona’s article brings an interesting perspective to who us (semi)outsiders might treat the Desert Dogs.
