Burnside update on STH sales

Quote:
With less than a month until the start of training camp, sources tell ESPN.com that season-ticket sales have once again stalled in the face of uncertainty surrounding the team's future. One source said season-ticket sales have topped out at about 4,000, ahead of last year, but still about half what should have been in place given the team's success last season. Perhaps even more significant is around one-quarter of the 87 suites at Jobing.com Arena have been sold for the coming season.
...
Critics have wondered all along whether this market could support an NHL franchise. Perhaps a better question is whether the team can survive the local politicians and city officials, who seem oblivious to the clock ticking away on the Coyotes' future in Glendale.
Instead of moving quickly to come up with a new lease agreement this summer with the Ice Edge Holdings group -- the only viable contender to buy the team regardless of rumors to the contrary -- the city has balked at conditions demanded by the group of Canadian and American businessmen.
