With Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes' primary business in turmoil and the club expected to lose $25M-$35M, the team's future is sketchy, according to The Globe and Mail.

The paper said Moyes will have to consider renegotiating the Coyotes' lease to bring the city of Glendale in to cover some losses, declare the Coyotes bankrupt or turn the franchise over to the league.

There probably shouldn't be a franchise in Arizona. The league was stupid to expand into the U.S. markets at such a ridiculous rate in the 90s and early 21st century. Now they are going to pay for their poor marketing and costly expansion over the next few years. Perhaps we will see more teams come back to Canada, or just less teams in the league.

Give Winnipeg their team back, putting the Jets into Phoenix where they could care less about hockey was a dumb idea.

NHL: sry we canut do dat sinz we tooo stoopid, we finkz dat we gunna sel ockey in teh states. and teh kenadians dunt ned anuffer teem dey gut lyke 8.

The best bet for a vyable franchise at this point would be if a group in Winnipeg surfaced, ready to pay the debt off and expand the MTS Centre to 18500 seats from the current 15500.

There are still TONS of die hard jet fans all over Canada and they would sell that rink out. Can you imagine that team that is maybe 3 years away from being a top teir hockey team with all that young talent (and a couple solid moves).

There could be a team that makes money instead of losing it for everyone.

If the NHL needs revenue badly from a relocating team they'll take the team to Seattle, and if they need one badly to the degree the league may lockout again, they'll go to Toronto again.

Man, this team is going under real fast. Since they failed to meet requirements(revenue and attendance targets), they lose 25% of their portion of the revenue share. Now, just last week they had to resort to laying off 18 office staff.

Get this team out of there now. Everyone in the league who thought it'd be a good idea for a team in the desert should lose their job for this pathetic move.

Coyotes are resorting to buying their own tickets in order to receive their maximum revenue share from the league.

Sorry but it is Nashville who is doing it - and they are only 256 tickets short of meeting the numbers. It is either that or lose $14M. Anyways it is being discussed in the Nashville team thread.

Sources tell TSN the Phoenix Coyotes received an offer to buy the financially troubled team on Tuesday.

Details on the offer are few, however, according to the source, the offer is considered to be positive in the sense that it opens up dialogue and further negotiations.

It is believed that the city of Glendale, which operates Jobing.Com arena, has agreed to significant concessions which has contributed to rallying this interest.

At least two other serious parties are said to also be in the mix to purchase the Coyotes.
