I've been rooting for the Coyotes (hate seeing teams move, plus if Phoenix could ever get their house in order, I love the idea of a rags-to-riches story), but I'm shocked that Jamieson has progressed to this point in a prospective sale of an NHL team, and something like Investor info isn't available.
Pardon me, but time passing does not equal progress. Where are we compared to when GJ was announced as a potential purchaser?

- lease - then = none, now = off the rails and being renegotiated
- purchase - then = unknown, now = unknown
- investors - then = unknown, probably short huge amounts of cash, now = unknown, possibly short cash, possibly one of CoG's sworn enemies

Not a lot of real progress here, potentially not far away, potentially not even close. now add in the political side of things and it starts to look like a powderkeg ready to go off. I'm personally ready with the armchair and popcorn to watch the show during the handoff of power from one council to the next.
