Did some talking head really compare the Coyotes to the 19 fallen firefighters?

They are going to take a 15 million dollar insurance policy on city hall and when it burns down use the money to pay the team

Once they start losing money, it will be less than 5 years.

Where are these "hockey fans" going to come from?

This is just a terrible development for the league. The phoenix experiment ended several years ago.

There are not enough fans in the Phx metro area to support an NHL team, period. I wish this weren't true, but it is.

It's hard to be optimistic about any of this.

If the "Arizona" Coyotes can upgrade their logo, colors and jersey, (ok, and fans) I promise to keep an open mind.

I don't want to see the Coyotes move, but these politicians are not doing the people's business.
