5. Stability Coming

Maybe it makes a difference on the ice, maybe it doesn't. But if our sources are correct, the final sale of the Coyotes to a group of investors should be completed by the end of the month, bringing to a close a long, miserable chapter for the franchise and the league itself. Certainly, it will be interesting to see what having stable ownership will do come trade deadline time when, in the past, GM Don Maloney has had to get league approval to add salary and, in some cases, was forced to trade players in order bring others back in. More importantly, will new ownership be able to rebuild the relationship that more than three years of uncertainty has put asunder? If Tippett's squad continues to perform as it has the past three seasons, that will go a long way to making this new relationship a successful one.

That's not really how franchised businesses work. So long as someone is willing to hold the bag, you keep that franchise going. This is doubly true when you can reap sweet rewards from opening 2 new franchises in Seattle and QC.
