If the Coyotes end up being purchased by a Reinsdorf, it should be examined very carefully. Based upon the original Reinsdorf proposal to buy the Coyotes, they wanted an 'opt out' clause of 5 years. That is not enough time to build the kind of fan base needed to make the team viable. From all appearances the Coyotes would be moved. How many dedicated fans are willing to invest financially and emotionally in a team that could move?"
5 years on top of 10 years they have already been in Glendale and 17 that they have been in Arizona. A shorter term is the only realistic option Glendale has. It may, dare I say, save the team in the short term.
