NHL Officials Hoping To Keep Coyotes In Glendale, But New Arena Deal "Critical"
Published February 5, 2013
THROW IN THE TOWEL? SPORTS ON EARTH's Joe DeLessio wrote, "There's one regular topic of conversation that I've always found totally depressing: the one about where the next relocated team is going to end up." The Coyotes have "been on the short list of teams that could relocate, be it to Seattle, or Quebec City, or maybe somewhere in Ontario." A solution for the Coyotes was "so close," but it is "maybe not so close anymore." Ultimately, it "may well be in the league's best interest to finally give up on Phoenix." If the team "can't turn a profit, and if the league can't find a buyer who believes the team can survive in Glendale under their watch, then relocating the team somewhere it can thrive is more important than maintaining a presence in a warm-weather city, no matter its market size" (SPORTSONEARTH.com, 2/4).
