Besides that, how many other emails regarding this sale went between he and Daly that he doesn't want us to know about?
To me that email makes it look like there are no real, legitimate, offers for the team, and that Bettman at some point does think that relocation will be the only solution. If Balsille tried to strike this deal and move the team to Winnipeg, I bet the NHL would let it happen. He says "we are running out of time" and "no one is interested in funding $40 million in losses." The GIANT elephant in the room is the Goldwater Institute who will challenge any subsidy Glendale puts forward which will make the Reinsdorf deal not work, which in turn could allow the league to either disband or put them into bankruptcy. There is only one ending to this story and it will be with the Coyotes dead. It is just a mtter of when and who will pull the trigger.

Also its proof to all of the blind Coyotes fans that have been arguing all year that everything will be ok, that actually it was as bad as Shoalts and the G&M said it was all along. How you like them apples?
