Move the team to Seattle and be done with it. Even if they get something done in Glendale now, it'll be the same **** all over again next year.

this Saga is completely insane , I think Québec is still in the race ( I hope ) , but i can't wait for this to be over . The Seattle rumours are bugging me a little , but i wont trow the towel until PKP , the Mayor and Marcel Aubut says that we are over and done with the Yotes .

Looks like Seattle is front-runner in this race if Glendale refuse to keep the team:

Aaron Portzline ‏@Aportzline 4m

RT @ChrisDaniels5: BREAKING: Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn acknowledges recent discussions with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman

Also when Canucks looks for their new AHL team to play they wanted Seattle but were told it's impossible right now.

For AVS team in Seattle is good option because we'll stay in the same division I rather have Quebec as expansion team in near future.

New team in Seattle probably would play in Key Arena previously used by NBA Seattle Supersonics and WHL Seattle Thunderbirds until new facility is build. Capacity for hockey is quite small 15200 but it's more than average Coyotes attendance. The issue could be that Key Arena really sucks for hockey and that's why Thunderbirds move out in 2009. It was built strictly for basketball so there is problem with view lines in some sectors during hockey game and scoreboard is not on center ice but in one team defensive zone.

Key Arena beyond sucks for hockey.... selfishly though I would really like a team in Seattle.

-It keeps the Avs in their current division.
-Keeps the demand up for expansion to 32 teams.
-Adds a team the PNW, which IMO needs one pretty badly.
-They would become my second favorite team instantly (I travel a lot to Seattle for work and I have to entertain clients so this gives a good winter sports option... so I would see a lot of games)

I don't mind Seattle getting the Coyotes at all, I was on their for a long time, but the more I think about the more i actually want Portland to get the team. I understand that will not happen at all considering the owner owns both the Trailblazers and the Rose Garden, though he lives in fear thinking a hockey team will steal from his NBA club in terms of fanbase/money. Sadly if he ever brought an NHL team his overall revenue would freakin triple right off the bat because the people of Portland actually like and care about hockey; considering how loyal they are with the Winterhawks.

I just think Seattle will be too close to Vancouver and majority of those games will be flooded with Nuck fans like with Habs/Leaf fans make their way down the Florida. I also think that this will happen to a degree with Edmonton and Calgary fans as well. Last, the people of Seattle and the city care much more about an NBA team than a NHL team while Portland would embrace them much more. Seattle plans to build an arena for the future basketball team while hockey will be second rate, why would NHL want to go to Seattle? If I was Bettman I would try long and hard to negoiate to Portland.

I do feel sorry for Quebec City a little bit because they care so much about hockey it's easier for Bettman to sell an expansion franchise in that area than it is to Seattle. I keep saying its just a matter of time before they get a team I just believe it won't be the Coyotes.

Dave Tippett and the Phoenix Coyotes have agreed on a five-year extension. The NHL has approved it, as well.
Good for them.

Wonder if this might, maybe, possibly, perhaps mean that they are staying in desert?

Yeah, MvsW podcast had a guy on from Seattle and he said the sight lines in the Key are atrocious for hockey.

Torts and Roy are going to coach in the same division y'all. I want them to debate after every game we play against each other.

Gillis is going all in. That core only has two-three years left if we're being generous and the only shot they have is if they start playing way outside their comfort zone. Enter Torts.

I like the hire. It probably won't work and will most likely end in hilarity but at least they're have a shot even if the odds are long.

As for what happens after the window closes? With the way they've been drafting, Canucks might be in for some very rough years.

Having a coach like Tortorella might actually work for the Canucks although I abviously hope he fails miserably.

I think Duchene has a good chance of making it especially since they will be playing on big ice.
