Dedicated to keep the team in Phoenix? Sure.

Dedication to reviewing personnel and marketing/operations strategies and creating/building on the organizational culture and values? Not so sure.

FWIW, the ideal situation in this case (IMO) would be an owner stepping up willing to put all of his money into the Coyotes....I'm mostly against sports teams getting public funding.

That said, considering this particular situation (ie: Glendale being in bad shape with the Coyotes leaving), I'll consider this as an exception as long as Hulsizer is willing to invest and help aid the economic boom these people are hoping for in the COG.

Some of these arguments are wicked good.
-Without hockey our quality of life will be low.
-Arizona produces a lot of professional hockey players
-Without the Coyotes the Coyotes fan base would be toast

Is this guy from Goldwater? All I caught was he is an attorney.

Edit: I guess so.

Of course they cut him off.

Let's get back to the discussion and the meeting in Glendale.

There's far too much flaming going on-- and people responding instead of reporting the posts.

Nice job kdb. How you managed to get all of that in between the stampede of Rhino Mounted Bhantu Shock Troop Warriors flooding the field I have no idea!. This thread should be wasted in about 42 minutes. I fear you'll be pulling double duty momentarily......

Not sure if you're seriously asking but he did plainly state he is an attorney earlier (I know the streams are not good).

This is fun. It saddens me that I am in Phoenix next week, and not this week. Go Yotes.

She didn't cut him off. She stopped his clock and asked if he was discussing the subject matter of tonight. He confirmed that he was, and she re-started his clock.

By the way: GWI seems to have confirmed their toothlessness. Not even a threat to litigate.
