That said, the lease wasn't the worst in professional sports or even in the NHL. It was overblown by the media in that regard. The Coyotes problems went well beyond a lease, or an incompetent owner, or attendance. It was a combination of factors that led the team down a path to massive losses and eventual bankruptcy.
