Does the league really have a choice at this point? If the Coyotes end up anywhere that's not Phoenix this October, I think it would set a precedent for shortest notice for relocation (though it does seem to be close to the timeline for the NBA Sonics' move to OKC), and they can't stay put without the keys to the franchise still in the league's pocket for some time yet.
