Here's an idea...
Let this fucking worthless excuse for a franchise move to the 'Peg or Quebec and give the prospective new owners HERE an expansion franchise and let us just start over again. This franchise is just fucking cursed.

Or better still, if things collapse in Phoenix (like it appears they might), let OUR new owners buy the Coyotes and move them here, and then send this pile of crap up North.

I swear, I'm so mad at this group right now, I can't even see straight.

hmmmm what happened that i am not aware of this time??

ive heard the rumours of 2 interested parties and such. plus most of the other stuff that gets twitted (cant stand tweeted) and on the other "official" sites. most of it is basically making me go hmm.. maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel that isnt train related.

Nothing happened. Just venting at today's first period.

AFAIK, there remains positive signs, with apparently two groups (or as John Kincade pointed out, one group and one single potential buyer with a smaller group of investors) interested in the whole megillah. I'm A LOT more hopeful now than I was about two weeks ago.

Oh, I see. I should've used the word "team" instead of "group." Sorry for the confusion.

If I owned the team I would move it to Winnipeg. Apparently, from what they tell me on the internets, an under achieving team that has never won a playoff game in over 10 years of existance, that fails to retain it's top tier players, that won't spend money to keep the arena clean, will sellout every night in Canada. You know, it's a REAL hockey market...
