Yep. I totally expect it to be filled when we are playing one of 'those' teams. But Dallas? They're not really that big of a draw, are they?

I'm interested to see what will happen on Tuesday against LA - how much of a bump will that crazy game with all of the fights affect the crowd? I know lots of people who usually don't care one bit about the Yotes were talking about it on Friday morning.

No where did I say it was a troll because it has a different opinion. I know what trolling is and mesamonster does it on a regular basis whether you want to acknowledge it or not.

Right now, I don't see a new arena happening in Seattle for the last thing the NHL wants to have is Atlanta 2.0 where the NHL team is used as a pawn to get a new arena in an area where the market wans an NBA team more and have some owner dump off the NHL team after a few seasons of poor management.
4 things. Those two things plus.

3. An NHL team has to sign a contract saying that they will play in Seattle.
4. Sign a lease that appears to be worse than the Coyotes current lease.

So, let me get this straight. The NHL denies reports that the Coyotes have been sold, even though no one has said that the coyotes have been sold. Did I get this right?

Good luck with that line of reasoning. Allow me to revisit my allegiances, I have a home in northern Minnesota and winter in Scottsdale. I know many of the Coyote management people and enjoy going to both the Wild games and the Coyote games dependent upon which city i am in at the time. That said, if you have read my posts you would know that I am a huge Tippett fan but also recognize a bad situation when i see it. The Coyote debacle is a major cluster---f--k from my perspective and as those of you who have read my posts know ad nauseum that my gripes pertain to the poor team economics, the poor location, BG and his penchant for introducing straw buyers. Last and not least the ineptitude of the COG Council for not recognizing the futility in pouring good money after bad. Had they let the team walk two years ago they would have not wasted 50MM in taxpayer funds and would be well on their way to replacing lost revenue with tractor pulls and cat shows. Today, these lazy local politicians have done absolutely nothing to promulgate plan "B". Even the putrid dwarf GB has a plan "B" but no these local imbeciles are content to pay Mr. Beasley ungodly sums to acquire his crony network of has beens to play the charade of hide the monkey while the rest of the hockey world looks on with disdain for this game being played in front of our eyes. I am hardly a troll just a realist who sees this whole display as a ghastly affront on the fans of the Coyotes who have spent time, money and energy supporting a team that GB has no intention of keeping in Arizona.

Read the article and correct me if I am wrong, didn`t GJ say four months ago that he had raised 400MM and was ready to sign a purchase agreement? Yet Scruggly maintains that she has attempted to contact GJ with no success. one would think that if was really a buyer he would have spoken to his soon to be landlord. But no ,the press has yet to put 2 and 2 together to realize that the basic building blocks of a deal have have not been consummated. When will everyone understand that this whole thing is like global warming: a complete hoax.

I'll correct you...... it was reported he originally had $400 million lined up over multiple investors. But he has never been quoted saying as such.

Some of those investors dropped out a few weeks later..... reportedly because they objected to the NHL's vetting process.

So RDS reported that "The NHL" denies that a deal is done. I have yet to see any sourced listed or any quote about the deal from the league. Usually Daly or someone is pretty quick to respond to big rumors like this. In this case, the silence is deafening. I sure hope they get a statement out Monday and not leave us hanging.

It's hard not to watch the scores of every important game, every night and not dream about playoff match ups (especially those that don't involve the Red Wings). It is easy to ignore any ownership speculation from anyone on this message board.
I'll believe it when it does/does not happen.

For what it's worth, a guy who works at Jobing.com said on Twitter tonight that some of the "higher ups" in the Coyotes org confirmed what Dave Zorn reported last night.

I'm going to sit back and eat the rest of this 10g bucket of popcorn until this whole movie is over. I just want an answer soon, whether they are staying or leaving, period.

Haha, well, some people have to dress a certain way to work, and they might not have time when getting off work to make it to the game unless they go straight from work to the game. I've always wondered why we always have earlier starts? 6pm? Is it because of people that live on the East side of town not wanting to drive back even later than they already do after a game?

I think its to get more families at the games. I think 7 starts are better and 2 starts on sundays and holidays would work but I am not a marketing genius.

The earlier the games on the weekends the better. I took my 3 yr old to the ducks game earlier this month and left after the second (thankfully) cuz he was getting tired. Darn you east coast!!

The NBA and NHL teams would also have to agree to a lease matching the 30-year length of the bonds, a provision that wasn't a part of the deal between KeyArena and the Sonics that helped lead to their departure in 2008 after 41 years.

Interesting. I hadn't heard that investors had dropped out due to the NHL's vetting process. Do you have a link for this information?

So what are the chances of this going through? 80% likely? I'm really liking what I've been hearing.
