Summer 2013, ???, who knows...

As long as Glendale is willing to pay the NHL to stay in Glendale, the NHL will stay in Glendale. Put all other logic aside.
silvercanuck, not sure whether you haven't followed the story or you're trying to rewrite it, but it ain't over until it's over. Therefore the Coyotes haven't moved yet.
