Seems that some of the posters here might have been right all along...

The sale of the Coyotes was directly related to the CBA getting finalized. Based on Jamison's comments like:

The NHL and NHL Players Association had come to a tentative agreement in New York, ending the 113-day lockout. Finally! “That was my first thought,” said Jamison, who has been attempting to finalize a purchase of the Phoenix Coyotes for months. “My next was: ‘What is it? What did we sign up for?’”

and

Jamison said he and the league —- the Coyotes’ current owner —- have already agreed to a general sale price for the club (he did not name that price), but there are myriad other details still to be worked out, including securing all the investors he has assembled.

It would appear to me that Jamison's investors ( whomever they may be ) didn't want to finalize this purchase until the CBA was finalized, as well as the details of that CBA. If that's the case then it looks like if the season had been cancelled, that would have been it for the Coyotes.
