Besides that, how many other emails regarding this sale went between he and Daly that he doesn't want us to know about?
It's very simple. Moyes counsel can request all documents pertaining to any discussions of the sale or movement of the Coyotes. If the league didn't deliver all of them, they could face court sanctions.

Federal Rules of Civil Procedure would include emails (all documents) within the League's defined retention policy. Anything that involves a contract would I believe need to be retained for the life of the contract, plus the retention period. What I've seen in correspondence of this type is a typical retention period of somewhere between 3 and 7 years.
