This isn't going to happen. If you think it will, you'll just be disappointed.

Emperor Weiers says Bettman will present him with the details of a possible sale within the next week or so. I'm guessing maybe the next two weeks instead.

It was well timed news to say here is the lead group and your deadline is up soon Glendale so make it happen...not to make a few more ticket sales that are just north of a few grand.

Remember, any group that wants the team to relocate would have to pay over $200 million with fees.
I agree when it comes to Reinsdorf, Hulsizer, and Jamison. Gosbee, Treliving, and Gallacher, however I thing have been red herrings. Not by the league but by bored, devious idiots on the internet.

There will be "something to this" when Gosbee himself says so and not one moment sooner. Until Gosbee opens his mouth, there is quite literally "nothing to this".
While I don't disagree with you, the fact that ESPN has it featured on the front page of their NHL section lends some credibility to what's being reported. Although ESPN isn't really an NHL (or even hockey for that matter) haven, it gives me some comfort that they are making note of it.

Was there a $10.0mm discount applied recently, or did I miss something?!

This is just getting crazy now I'm so sick of getting let down, I'm stoked to hear there is interest but I almost don't believe any of it at this point

It's just another story to help generate the idea that more than 1 interested party is interested. A long time ago, there were claims that the owners of the CFL team in Toronto were intereted in the Coyotes as well on top of Ice Edge and JR.

Sure, someone who is going to spend $170M on an NHL team is going to issue a press release themselves. Oh, and it's the only press release they have ever released. - Yeah, sounds about right.

They made note of the Gallacher reports too. Still confident?

I don't think some of the Debbie downers could handle it, to be honest.

Why does it seem that every year at the end of the season there is a buyer who stays around just long enough for the new season to start? Are any of these guys a legit buyer or just a new beard by Bettman.

Mr.Pastor was quick to make a "public" PR release of his interest in buying the team. That tells you alot. No "whispers". All of the buyers are legit. The price and "terms" are the issue.

Who's to say how much money Mr. Pastor has or has cobbled together. I'm not optimistic...yet

not to try and compete with Mr. Pastor, but I just got back from Walgreens where I bought a big bag of M&M candy and after conducting an inventory I am now prepared to make a preemptive bid to purchase the Coyotes to keep them here in Glendale and am prepared to pay up to 195M for the team and if I do say so myself I think that's a very tasty offer.

Sorry but the mess with Atlanta were the buyers legit(they had the money) but factors beyond their control prevented them from wanting to buy the Thrashers and other assets like the hawks and the Arena.

Well at least it looks like both these guys actually have the one thing the last couple didn't; Money!

GJ and MH needed a lot of help. These guys seem to just need to say yes or no to whatever deal they can negotiate with the NHL. Let's pray they dig a little deeper and buy the arena too. Since I'm already praying, I'm going to throw in that they do an NBA-type conspiracy deal and get the #1 pick too!
