Also very interested to see if the lease deal he signs has an out after 5 years or something. Announcing this also puts all the pressure on the city to get a lease deal done. If they cant get it done then Bettman can say fine we are moving them.
Either way its probably nearing the end of the NHL owning the Coyotes.
