New Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers said he has his doubts about whether Jamison actually will be able to pull it off by Thursday.
“For the life of me, I can’t figure why, if everything is lined up, if he’s got the money in hand, why would he postpone this? That’s the only thing I haven’t been able to figure out,” Weiers said. “What would be the purpose of delaying it?”
The mayor said he asked Jamison that very question last week. Weiers said Jamison responded that he was optimistic about completing the sale but offered no details.
Neither Jamison nor league officials offered any explanations about the seemingly slow negotiations when asked by The Arizona Republic last week.
Jamison said, “We’re aware of what we have to do to get this closed. We’re working very hard to get there. So far, the anticipation is that we will get there. That’s kind of where we’re at, at the moment, and I probably wouldn’t take it much further than that.”
He declined further comment.
NHL spokesman Frank Brown stated in an e-mail that the sale process continues and that league officials remain hopeful of a positive resolution.
“Transactions follow their own timelines. I will not characterize specifics,” he said
