I made up my mind a few weeks ago. I just don't see it happening. This was the sweetest deal we're going to see. The only way to make it work would be to drastically reduce the asking price, but over the past 4 years I never saw any hint that that could happen.

Ultimately, I have to be honest, I'm very skeptical about the Coyotes ever making money in Glendale. It's one hell of a steep hill to climb. Any new owner wouldn't benefit from a novelty effect or a new shiny building, and we'll never have spare cash for a couple brand name superstars.

Oh well. This whole fiasco was really decided when the Scottsdale city council killed the Los Arcos project. We didn't know it at the time, but it just postponed the inevitable.

At least, I'll get to cherish last season forever. After 16 years we finally had a pretty damn good team, exciting prospects, a great coach and GM, an amazing captain, something to really cheer for, and it paid off. To me, it was all worth it.
