There is no way they'd move the team from Glendale back to Phoenix. The arena in Phoenix wasn't suitable for hockey which is why they moved the team in the first place. Move it to Quebec already, they can play in Le Colisee until the new arena is ready. It holds over 15,000 people who will pay more than $15 a ticket.
Jamison hasn't even proven he has the money to buy the team. He wouldn't reveal who his investors were during the city council meeting, yet somehow they gave him the money.
I think ultimately the team will stay in Phoenix. If there's one thing I learned in hockey, it's that Bettman gets what he wants, pretty much all the time. And it's only pretty much all the time because he did finally have to call it quits in Atlanta...which was much more of a salvageable situation than Phoenix.
