I hope the Yotes don't move. I have relatives in Phoenix and every Yotes fan (ok almost everyone) is an awesome hockey fan. You guys deserve better.

If something happens, I know the kings are rivals and all, but you guys are all welcome as Kings fans.

good luck tomorrow

Yeah, but is there an out clause?

Oh, sorry, force of habit.

Who? Was it all three rinks or just one? I thought the deadline for bids was May 30, so for it to already be done on July 1 seems really, really quick. Or maybe I'm just thinking these things run on Coyote time?

I was told all of them were bought by Lee Ploszaj for $20-25 million.

I've heard several rumors, but this is the second time I've heard this one so perhaps it's got some truth to it.

Thanks for this info.
I hope he knows how to run ice facilities since all previous Polar Ice owners didn't.

One would think that ice rinks in AZ would do crazy levels of business. Not like they are abundant, or people can just go skate on a local pond. I wonder if they could stay operational while running as non profits, donating a large portion of the ice time to local youth hockey..

This would seem to be a good sign then:

Have you heard anything further?
Is he affiliated with the Caha group or the Arcadia group that both put in bids?
I'm really interested in this hoping that they'll keep them as "ice" facilities instead of "turf".
(Got kids in playing in Peoria).

You can just pm me if you'd rather not make the info public.
Thanks!
