Do you honestly think the NHL is spending any time at all thinking about managing and marketing the team right now??

The NHL owning the team is very much like the bank taking over a foreclosed home. They're not going to resurface the pool or upgrade the fridge. They want to sell fast, for a bargain price, in order to stop losing money on the property.

Televised Coyote games in AZ don't generate any revenue to anyone right now.
