He just said on twitter it's not true

Heh. Yeah, I just listened to McCown's second hour podcast. Shannon corrected him and said that deal was dead now. I knew that deal sounded too good to be true.

Not saying if it is true or not but if it were true, I'd imagine they wouldn't announce something like this right now when Phoenix are still in the playoffs.

Anyone read this?

http://www.azcentral.com/community/glendale/articles/2012/05/18/20120518glendale-25-million-nhl-payment-utility-fund.html

This is just an utter disaster. The city of Glendale is using it's sewage and utility funds to pay for a hockey team, it's credit rating spirals down the toilet as agencies have less faith they can repay their debts. If I was a Glendale resident I'd be kicking up a huge shitstorm over this. Personally, I'm shocked the other NHL owners haven't lobbied hard and heavy to dump the financial drain.

That team should move its not working in that city !
Shame the team are playing really great hockey with getting to the 2nd round of the playoffs this season but if the fans don't show up for a regular season game and the team is losing money the coyoles should run for the broader.

Theres a reason why other owners want Yotes to stay.

Well... To be fair to the Coyotes; I have the suspicion that this would have happened any other way even if the Coyotes left the state.

Arizona was one of the states hardest hit by the recession the U.S. went through after the 2008 stock market crash, and they're still feeling the after-effects along with Nevada.

Forbes reported today that Jamison still hasn't raised enough money to buy the team.

The Coyotes have been granted a very favourable 20-year lease in the historic Jobing.com Arena. A few minor laws were broken, the Goldwater Yappy Watchdog Institute is licking a few wounds inflicted after being walked on by golf spikes, and one has to wonder whether it's really a lease or a public subsidy.

But it's the deal the team and the city needed to get done to keep the team in Phoenix.

If the deal is held up, it doesn't mean the team will enter into a phase of new-found prosperity. It merely means there's a measure in place that has to be regarded if a prospective new owner wants to buy and move the franchise. In this case, it means a new owner would have to pay to break the lease. The payment amount would likely cover the costs incurred by Glendale to build this mongrel mutt of an arena.

In other words, pay us to break even - somewhere between $2-300 million - and you can have the godforsaken hockey team not enough people care about.

Tough one for the Quebec bunch to deal with as they've already had a tough time getting public money just to build their own barn. Now it'll cost almost as much just to get a team to play in it.

Have to wonder if the money is really there in Quebec to overcome all this. If you took all the arena subisidies and applied them to province-wide university education costs, the student riots currently plaguing Montreal would be over tout farking suite , I shouldn't wonder.

Excellent usage of puns and double entrande. Your post is full of win.

Historic?

That arena looks like it was carved out of a box.

A week ago, Quebec City had the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new arena. Looks like this will be a go, NHL or no NHL. I suspect they will be getting a team before it opens in 2015.

Then shouldn't this thread be moved from proposed to u/c?

They better keep the old Colisee Quebec, you definitely need it for any future Olympics bid.

Boasting up to 15,000 for Figure Skating/Short Track Speed Skating, alongside your 18,000 seater arena for Ice Hockey I, is a big thing.
