While yesterday was quite a prolific one for news stories regarding the Coyotes situation, there are still a number of interesting news articles from across North America;
CBS: Bettman, NHL finds quagmire in Valley. Bettman really needs to stop the public chatter, get back to Arizona and get all the principles in the same room if he wants this deal to close. Perhaps that’s why he’s back in NY…..
Globe & Mail: NHL keeps Winnipeg waiting. No surprise that the NHL will keep Winnipeg waiting. As someone wrote the other day using the bad relationship analogy, the City is willing to take the NHL back, no matter how badly they treat us.
Toronto Sun: Return of NHL to “Peg would be just Ducky: Hawerchuk. Doesn’t the picture of Hawerchuk’s face when his jersey was retired by the Yotes say it all. Gotta love #10. Won’t it be nice to see the #10 raised at the MTS Centre.
Arizona Republic: ‘Tea Party’ group dissatisfied with answers on Coyotes deal. Not sure what they were expecting. Transparency and Government, whoever heard of that. Although I bet they didn’t think Mayor Scruggs would take the “threat” of protest quite so far.
Winnipeg Free Press: Business anxious for the NHL. The revitalization of Winnipeg’s downtown will be quite the marvel if everything gets realized.
Winnipeg Free Press: Thomson is 17th richest in the world. I guess Mike Milbury, when he suggested Winnipeg would need a ‘sugar daddy’, wasn’t aware of David Thomson’s place on the Forbes list of billionaires.
