What does happen if the Coyotes win the Stanley Cup this season?
Would the move be postponed to see if the cup win might generate more interest?
Once it has been decided to move the team and sold to new ownership, what the Coyotes do or do not do on the ice has no bearing what so ever.
Just to note: there was a 3rd party study done quite a while ago that suggested the Coyotes would have to sell out every regular season game and go very deep in the playoffs EVERY season, just to even suggest a chance at breaking even financially.
Look at it this way... What the Coyotes have done on the ice for the last 4 seasons ( being quite successful ) has had zero bearing on selling this team. One trip to the Cup isn't going to change anything.
