If that true than ego likely got in the way. It was Jamison deal and if he choose to let it die because he did not want to be moved aside that petty on a whole new level. It more likely that nobody was interested in getting stuck in Glendale for two decades. With serious indication that the city could default at some point and no guarantee that the NHL won't just fill all the juicy market with expansion teams ASAP.
