Probably would, but IIRC Jamison has said ( sometime in the last 19 months ) that the price is not an object.


Sure does appear to be becoming an issue ... At this late date.

I expected that GJ would have said that the deal would close in hours not days.

Since we're getting near the 1000 post point, can the next Phoenix topic have a poll asking if people think Jamison will actually by the team by midnight Feb 1st or not? I'd be interested in seeing how many people think one way versus the other.

HOW DO YOU KNOW, Glacial, (none of us does) that the Jamison lease/sale HAS to go through proper channels, and isn't already an agenda item on the Next BOG Meeting, much the way Hansen has to wait for the NBA BOG vote to complete his acquisition, if the CBA hadn't gotten in the way, which is wht GJ was instructed to do before the previous CBA expired.

Approving the sale of the Coyotes to Jamison would be a mere formality. Unlike the Kings, the NHL owns the team and there is only one party that wants to buy or retain it. The NHL handpicked Jamison so he's obviously been vetted by the board. He is an NHL insider with numerous high profile contacts within the league. If he had the investors this would be a done deal.

Not disputing that.

The assertion was LeBlanc is the major investor. We all know he's involved in some way, but that's the extent of it.

But if someone wants to follow up and find out how HedgeEye is doing then maybe the picture could be a little clearer in that area?

"Price is not an issue", and yet you are having a hard time rounding up investors? I would say that price is exactly the issue.

If Jamison had any sense of humor, he would have said "weeks not months".

That would have sent the BOH boards over the edge...

What's the fair market value of a team that has lost money every year of its existence?

The NHL is a business not a charity.

The Coyotes are not tied to a lease and can be sold for relocation to other markets.

So many excuses, none of which had any real impact on his ability to buy or not buy the Coyotes...

If I thought he could do it, I probably wouldn't be posting this...

Come one people, the next thread is # LXIX, or # 69 for those of you that don't speak Roman. What's the first thing you think of when you hear the number 69? Former Washington Capitals journeyman Mel Angelstad, first NHLer to wear 69?

No. And not that either. We're talking the mid 1980's nostalgic throwback tune by Canadian rocker Bryan Adams, harkening back to a simpler time, lamenting how "the times are changing" and "nothing can last forever". You hear that, BOH Coyotes enthusiasts? Nothing can last forever. Or can it?

This would work. Kinda like Detroit Abandoned Homes porn slide shows that they have going on the internet. Someone could put together photos of thousands of empty seats for Columbus on a Tuesday night, then Nashville on a Wednesday night. For whatever reason, people seem to enjoy viewing photographic evidence of the ruins of a city, or in this case, the ruins of a hockey franchise.

Pretty sure moderately intelligent math guys proved hundreds of years ago that the tortoise would not and could not possibly win. It's all about limits and calculus, so the idea that the slow-moving tortoise named Jamison will win is not something that I would cling to were I a Coyotes fan. It's a nice tale, but eventually numbers get in the way to prove it's impossible.

In all our conversations with him, he has consistently outlined the possibility that this deal may not happen. But again, that is his experience as a businessman talking, not his concern that the deal will fall through.
