Besides Bell is allowed to own pieces of the Leafs and Habs.
The issue isn't ownership but the fact that he would be the "controlling owner" of the Coyotes (controlling meaning the president not ncessarily the majority owner). A minority ownership in both clubs would be allowed, but once you are in charge of a club you can't have a stake in another club.

Baisically you can have wonership stakes in upto 3 clubs as long as only one of the clubs is >10% stake and is less than 30%. If you are a director or president or whatever of a club, or have >30% stake you cannot have a stake in any other club.
