not exactly, silvercanuck, it depends on what each team's PDC states in case of leaving early, when Florida announced they were ending their stay in Rochester by Thanksgiving of 2009, after Buffalo and Rochester split after 29 years 3 years hence, under Golisano, and then Terry Pegula, who inherited that PDC, TO GET back to Rochester, which the Sabres ended up buying, btw, cost Pegula 650K, to buy out the 2 years which Phoenix, as Buffalo, and Washington and Anaheim before them are required to find the next team before signing w/ someone else.
Phoenix elected to not renew its deal in SA, SO no matter if the Coyotes remain in AZ or are in SEA, THAT AFFILIATION remains, independent of the issues btwn VAN and CHI, keep in mind, each relocation is different, so if Levin does buy the Coyotes, there's some chance the Wolves might be sold to someone else, similar to what TNSE had w/ Manitoba, there might be a caveat, that any conflict of interest, or a rule wshere you cannot own 2 teams in two leagues even though they're affiliated, that's why you saw the original agreement w/ Danny Williams being part of the TNSE transfer to St. John's.
