Wow. Shane Doan would be a Canuck right now if the Yotes hadn't lied through their teeth and assured him that this deal was getting done. There's no way he would've signed in Phoenix if he knew this would happen. Now that is frustrating.

Columbus has always been a great hockey team. They went absolutely crazy for the Jackets for the first few years. Anyone remember this?:

Can't blame the fans for losing interest in a perpetual bottom-feeder. However, they are amassing some really good young talent, and will probably start actually competing for a playoff spot within the next 2 seasons.

Bottom right there is a link to an interview with Glendale’s new mayor.

In a nutshell:

New counsel has no desire to extend or offer a similar deal as the one signed by Jamieson & Glendale

Business needs to make it on their own, city will not support one business and not another

Glendale needs more policing & fire protection old deal would hamper that

Mayor knows of a couple of interested parties, will set up meetings ASAP

Wants team to stay but not at the cost that burdens the taxpayers

-----------------------------------

no way anyone with money wants this team in Glendale, if investors balked at the sweetheart deal Jamieson worked out how can a much lessor deal be more attractive?

After the lockout I'm sure NHL owners would love a piece of any relocation fee & getting the Yotes off of the collective owner’s books.

I do feel for the real fans of the Yotes, as I did for Quebec City & Winnipeg when they were faced with the same dilemma

So if I understand this correctly, the city of Glendale is 'letting go' of the Coyotes, as in they will not be financially supporting the team anymore? I am confused, can someone give me the cole's notes version?

The writing is on the wall Bettman you failed its time to move the Coyotes to Quebec or Seattle.

Forbes : Bet On Coyotes Moving To Seattle As Sale To Jamison Falls Apart

What a shock!

Jobing.com Arena, home of the Coyotes. The lease agreement of the Arena was cited as one reason for the failure of the franchise. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Greg Jamison still doesn’t have enough money to buy the Phoenix Coyotes from the NHL. I wrote seven months ago that the former executive of the San Jose Sharks couldn’t get prospective investors to buy into his game plan even with a new, sweetheart lease for Jobing.com Arena from Glendale.

Look for the team to move to Seattle if the sale of the Sacramento Kings to hedge fund manager Chris Hansen andMicrosoft CEO Steve Ballmer is finalized. The NBA team’s prospective new owners want to move the Kings to Seattle where they plan on opening a new arena in two years. Two teams in one building is better economics.

Quebec, the former home of the Colorado Avalanche, has also been mentioned as a viable place for the Coyotes to go. It is. Quebec City has broken ground on a new arena. But NHL commissioner Gary Bettman wants the league to be coast-to-coast. And with Jets moving from Atlanta to Winnipeg last season the NHL doesn’t want its sponsors and U.S. television partner, NBC Sports, thinking the league is contracting geographically.
