Size Of Phoenix TV Market Major Deterrent To Relocation Of Coyotes To Winnipeg

NOT PART OF THE WHITE OUT: In Phoenix, Mark Faller reported prospective Coyotes Owner Matthew Hulsizer is not expected to attend tonight's game, a "troubling" sign for the team's future in Arizona. Hulsizer has been "mysteriously quiet and invisible for weeks," not attending a single playoff game to date, and the "silence has proven toxic." People close to Hulsizer "insist that all is well, that he is as committed as ever." But Faller writes, "Another absence by the would-be owner of the Coyotes would send an unmistakable message to fans and players: He can't save the team, the move to Winnipeg is imminent, and all that's left is for the NHL to blow the whistle" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 4/20).
