This team has gone through more drama in the past 13 years....perhaps longer than I can remember.
The team has been looking for a new home in the East Valley and has plans to develop land in Tempe. City has an RFP to develop land there. A new east valley arena would jeopardize Glendale as they still have 12+ years remaining on the bonds.
The original RFP with Tempe was today and was extended to September 3. Even if the new arena pans out, it will be a looong time until it's ready as it involves land clean up which will be funded by the city.
This franchise has had more than 9 lives here but if they no longer have a willing partner in the city, this will be a tough bind....maybe the toughest yet.
This will be the Coyotes first year in the central division....Houston Coyotes perhaps...convenient.
