  • Court Is In Session

    The Red Wings have a chance to hoist Lord Stanley's Cup for the second consecutive year tonight at Mellon Arena, but off-the-ice drama is stealing the headlines this afternoon, as U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Redfield Baum is hearing arguments on the Coyotes’ potential relocation. A decision in the long-awaited showdown, though, will have to wait, as Baum says he will not make a final ruling today on the issue of who has control of the franchise, waiting instead until the end of the week. Baum explains, "We’re not selling a used car here. It’s a pretty significant asset. There’s a lot at stake." Follow the hearing as it happens on THE DAILY's Twitter feed. Meanwhile, we offer a timeline detailing the long road that has led both sides to today’s hearing.
