Its possible! But it might not work considering that any owner of a team here is also responsible for the costs not related to hockey at Jobing.com Arena. The current lease Matt Hulsizer has with Glendale should the bonds sell calls for the City of Glendale to cover $97 million of the arenas operating costs over the next 5 seasons. Long story short, it could cost a new owner of a AHL or ECHL team here more than it would with the Coyotes.

Plus the RoadRunners were never as big as the Coyotes here and they died 2 times.
