The timeline is very tight because there are a lot of negotiations required for any new ownership group. Besides, I think that Glendale city council will do any and everything to avoid the nightmare scenario... spending $25 million on a lame-duck season. If they can't get an owner to keep the team, they will be trying to work something out with the NHL vis-a-vis relocation that will minimize their expenses.
