Here is a problem with your thinking though

The City of Glendale owns the building. Without the Coyotes 41 dates that is lost $ in parking , concessions , etc

That is why Glendale is putting up 25 mil because without out the Coyotes they will lose alot more money having a stadium that is mostly empty (Remember there is a competing stadium that Suns play in in downtown Pho ,, That tends to get the big concerts , etc because of its location to higher population centers
