Not sure if this was posted yet:
cmorganfoxaz: Expect official announcement on sale of #Coyotes a little later today. New ownership group likely to be introduced at press conference Tues.

It's going to be weird around the BOH with no Phoenix megathread going. The end of an era.

Thread Titles, if the deal:

Closes: Phoenix XCIX: Let the 'Revenue Streams' Flow
Doesn't close: Phoenix XCIX: We tried, but we couldn't do it

Well it's almost on the East Coast and 9AM in AZ. So we've got anywhere from 5 to 15 hours depending on which definition of the end of the day you are using. Daryl Jones's tweets today have made no mention of the Coyotes.

Well that doesnt make sense. You'd think he'd wake up like a 5 year old on Christmas morning, knowing Santa Claus had actually delivered his very own NHL franchise to play with. Right there, under the tree, and its only August. Awesome. Thats one serious gift. Youd think he'd be all excited, barely able to contain himself in 140 characters or less.

You can't have the 99th thread not include the phrase "99 problems" in it. It's just wrong.

You guys are splitting hairs. Rocky has been around the Hawks his entire life. Just because the old man was running things doesn't mean we had a wholesale ownership change.

I can't wait. This dog needed to be put down a long time ago. It's unfortunate its corpse will be resurrected in 5 years.

Edit... It'd be kinda cool if this thing ended on the 100th thread. "C you in 5 years."

Please. Rocky distanced himself from the blackhawks, it was his brother that was there working for and helping run the hawks.

Im surprised Bettman & Daly havent called for a Press Conference either in New York for this afternoon or tomorrow in Glendale. Im not seeing anything on search...

Ok, the thread needs to be kept around long enough for this.

He knew everything. Team is in the family for three generations now? He didn't have to come in and build an entire new organization, negotiate leases, etc. No money changed hands.

Come on, Tommy.

Yeah...should this end prior to then...give it a couple more threads for everyone to blow off some steam and come to grips with the idea that they'll have to find something else to talk about for 1,825 days.

Lately, I've been trying to think of the various historical moments we could witness between then and now. I also have mused about what the salary cap will look like, and whether or not expansion will have occurred, and what other teams may be in trouble by them. I think about what players will have retired by then, and what the face of the NHL will look like 5 years out. i'm of the opinion that there's so much that'll happen between then and now that this will be relatively forgotten in light of other things of significance that pop up. Then it'll happen. 5 years will have past. We'll wonder where it all went and start the next thread. "It's nice to C Every I Again."

Save that for thread 100. I have a feeling that once we get closer to 5PM on the East Coast this topic will blow up. How about "Glendale's got 99 problems but approving giveaways ain't one"

C you in less than two... it won't be long until everyone's monitoring the financial performance watching the out clause getting closer and closer and the capital from the NHL running down and down. A $30 million loss next year would eat through more than 1/3 of it.
