Westgate is close to going under. It is supposedly up for auction.
Communities everywhere are desperate for money.

Here come the dreaded "what-ifs"

CoG doesn't fit the bill for the Yotes for the 12-13 season.
No buyer is found either in the Glendale area or in another city.
(I'm not sure how Westgate supposedly going bankrupt fits into this.)

Is the NHL going to be the foster parent for the Yotes for the 12-13 season?
Can the team fold?

What other possible scenarios are there and how could they play out?
The NHL retains ownership and moves the franchise themselves to wherever.
