NHL never wanted to own the Coyotes.. And given the new arena and the bad precedent it would set in future with regards to new arean's the NHL has had to try and find a local owner as priority
There is no current potential market to place the Yotes either
- QC has no confirmed ownership group that has stepped forward nor an arena (Yet)
- KC has no ownership group (Do have a very nice arena waiting)
- Sea has no arena or ownership group
Hamilton is never getting team (Will be negative with regards to health of Sabres) nor is the current arena even close to NHL quality
