Wouldn't this current lease be complete in its entirety and ready to be executed, unlike the incomplete lease from June?
Sure, just like the Hulsizer lease that was approved.

The issue is that there are built-in delays with the COG process (permitting a petition drive), and there are a number of steps required before all three parties would be in a position to sign the contract (including conclusion of the sale of the franchise from the NHL to the "Team Owner"). As long as the lease remains unsigned, the COG is under no obligation to carry out the terms, and the new council could overturn the decision or put it on hold, etc.

The bottom line is that I don't think that a lease will actually be signed and carried out unless the new mayor and council are on board, and it seems that Jamison either doesn't understand that or he doesn't care.
