So which is it? No temporary arena or lack of a "suitable" one
The issue is its not viable arena given that 2000 seats are unusable due to hockey configuration and about 4k have terrible sight lines. it is no differnet than what the Sharks used while their arena was being built. Cow Place was the name?
Two very credible insiders, and NHl mouthpieces have said the NHL would never play at Key Arena, Dreger and Renaud Lavoie. Seattle is not ready, if the Coyotes move this year its to Québec City.
I just don't see the coyotes moving to quebec city(even if I would love too since I live 20 minutes away from quebec), the nhl just transferred 2 teams in the eastern conference... why would they that if they are going to move the coyotes to quebec and end up with 17 teams in the east and 13 in the western conference. They would have to either have quebec play in the western conference or realign the division again and get an approval from the nhlpa again
The coyotes are either staying in Phoenix are moving to Seattle...
I hope I am wrong but I just don't believe that the nhl would waste time to realign the division twice in a 1 or 2 month span... doesn't make sense at all
