Even if it was somehow possible for Glendale to go it alone, the hour is awfully late. It may be a journey up the Kyber without a paddle, but its worth exploring, as it has worked elsewhere beyond GreenBay. My favorite being the "Toledo Mud Hawks" (Corporal Klingers' team - MASH) which is community owned.
Back to reality. Hockey is not the major sport in Arizona. It ranks just behind mountain climbing in Sedona and Flagstaff. There is a core of hockey fans here but clearly not enough to warrant a community owned team. The sport is growing fast down here but the market is 20 years away from becoming a real hockey town.
