Im not sure Im following you here M4B. My understanding of the terms or concept is that Beacon is to be providing two separate RFP's. One without the Coyotes, the other with. So in the latter, they would have to be then working with potential suitors in crafting the parameters of that RFP (possibly more than one on that side of the equation if theres more than one interested group), while on a simultaneous & parallel track buyers negotiating with the NHL. One would also hope the NHL having pre-qualified these individuals or groups as having the scratch if not the experience (preferably) to actually pay for the team themselves & cover the losses moving forward. The league also providing in-put pursuant to the length of a Lease, Relocation & Arena Management Contract, fee structure etc. Furthermore, and Im speculating, but due to Beacons cozy relationship with the Reinsdorfs & Kaites, I cant help but suspect they may well be back in play, Jamison possibly, no idea really, and beyond that, this Gosbee rumour & Le Blanc, not seeing it.
