I keep going back to the unknown owners that will soon (allegedly) own the team. We know Jamison is just a front man, he doesn't have the cash to purchase the team. We think the NHL would have approved this ownership group long before they've spent 16 months going down the Jamison path. So who are the owners? There's a whole bunch of interested people in Canada in general, Quebec City specifically, who are somewhat eager to find out what's going on with the Coyotes. I'm sure various media people have been asking around trying to find out how legit Jamison's group really is.

The fact that we've heard absolutely nothing about who his partners are, aside from speculation it's the native tribe building a nearby casino, leads me to the conclusion that the JIG does not have $170 million available right now to buy a hockey team. Surely by now someone doing some digging would have found a bread crumb about who his investors are. Rumours of the Coyotes' demise surfaced long before Moyes turned up in bankruptcy court holding Balsillie's hand. We should have know long ago if there really was money and owners lined up behind Jamison to buy this team.
