Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

1 THROUGH me you pass into the city of woe:
2 Through me you pass into eternal pain:
3 Through me among the people lost for aye.

4 Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
5 To rear me was the task of power divine,
6 Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.

7 Before me things create were none, save things
8 Eternal, and eternal I endure.
9 All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Source: Winnipeg on the radar

Why do I get the feeling that more news will be spilled today... The ball is rolling.

Sportsnet has just gave us more info.

Quote:
"While I'm not prepared to confirm or deny (the report), it certainly would be irresponsible (if not incompetent) on our part if we weren't doing all the things we need to do to ensure we have alternatives at the appropriate time. One alternative may be Winnipeg," the source told Sportsnet via e-mail.

We'll see if more gets leaked.

Dreger's rebuttal to WFP report:

Quote:
Desert Stalemate: Sources close to businessman Matt Hulsizer say he has done nothing to alter his proposal to buy the Phoenix Coyotes, nor has he changed his intention to sit patiently while the NHL, the City of Glendale and the city's bankers continue to try and solidify bond buyers.
Quote:
If Hulsizer isn't willing to sweeten the pot and there is no tangible interest among bond buyers, then the deal - while not completely dead - is on life support with Gary Bettman deciding when to pull the plug.

As of this morning, there are no meetings or conference calls between the NHL, Hulsizer and Glendale planned to further the process along one way or another.
Life support indeed. Get the crash cart. If not, make sure the DNR is signed.

I always think NYC, Michigan, Ohio, places like that when thinking Simon & Garfunkel. Great artists, great titles, but can ye' nay' be coming up with things that are topical to Arizona & the Southwest?. Never mind that your scaring off the yoots' with Paleolithic PopCulture References. We needs da yoot's to grow la familia here at hf or the site dies.... New markets. C'mon. Get with program Mods & Administrators. Its not 1969 anymore when everything & anything in your life was possible... I just thought Id share that rather depressing thought with ya'll. So...

Carry on,
and teach
your children well
their fathers health
did slowly go bye

That's not really a leak. It's just reality for even the most "pro-stay in Phoenix" or "pro-move somewhere else" people.

I thought Hulsizer was trying to buy the team. So now he is sitting patiently on the sidelines while everyone else does the heavy lifting to get the money to buy the team. Seems to me that if you were trying to buy the team you would be the one knocking on doors trying to get the bonds sold. Or is Hulsizer nothing more than a figurehead owner for what is ultimately the NHL's team? Someone to own it for the next 5 years while the NHL continues its search for a real owner.

Since the NHL has been able to discuss a deal with TNSE since Jan. 1st and since they basically already agreed to a bona fide offer last year (which, based on Lawless' article, would not have been made if TNSE didn't have BOG approval and relocation approval), I doubt there would be much more to iron out in this transaction now.

IMO, COG paid 25 million to cover the losses for this season, so the NHL did not explore selling the team to relocation interests during the season. However, the Coyotes 2010-2011 season officially ended on Saturday. If the NHL met with TNSE earlier this week, I'm guessing that it wasn't to finalize an offer, but to transfer ownership for next season.

My guess is that Coyotes have already been sold to TNSE.

Haven't you seen the ad from Scottsdale around here, with the good looking girl, rope a lasso. Heck I clicked on it everyday just to try and keep it around. Alas, she's gone...

MOD: Business board only accepts news links from mainstream media and associated twitter accounts (e.g., Dreger w/TSN); the league and NHL teams; and bloggers cleared as insiders, who often are associated with an MSM outlet as well.

The NHL has been able to discuss a deal with TNSE since last May as per the agreement they signed with the COG for $25 million loss coverage. Jan 1st is the date they could excute a sale to a relocation party. They have been free to discuss any such arangement any time

Make sure you turn up the sound. Or some Sennheiser headsets will do.

The Road goes ever on and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet.

Or "Money" would have been just as appropriate!
