Safe to say, if Jamison doesn't show the NHL the money today, it pretty much spells the end of the southwest hockey experiment.
Sounds like it's not gonna happen...there's a rumor that the NHL didn't like one of Jamison's investors and he can't find replacement funds

City of Glendale is gonna get screwed either way because they're gonna lose a bunch of money without the Coyotes anyways. It's either pay to keep them there, or pay for an empty arena to sit around most of the year.
