I recall hearing that somewhere. The league entered a purchase agreement with the JIG around this time last year. May 19th I believe. There was a pretty big news conference announcing it. Then Jamison worked to gather the funds and investors to make the purchase work, but failed to do so by the January 31st deadline.

I don't know if the CoG had exclusivity... But the last council was pretty buddy-buddy with Bettman. I also don't think that they really could've negotiated a lease with anyone else first, especially if the league wouldn't have approved Glendale's choice.
