Be seeing you!
Okay, remind me not to invest with Capstone. Seriously, how are the Coyotes are an "undervalued asset" at $170 million in Glendale?

Anyway, I'm glad he thinks so. This is exactly the type of potential owner that has been needed for a local sale (assuming he actually has the money). The NHL and COG needed that rare person who saw the asset as being undervalued at the sale price so that they wouldn't need to extract a huge subsidy from the COG to offset some of the purchase cost.
