Coyotes, Glendale seek yet another 30-day extension

Oct 8, 2012, 8:20 PM EDT


If dreary lockout news isn’t enough to brighten your Monday, here’s your latest broken-record update for the Phoenix Coyotes sale.

The Coyotes/NHL and City of Glendale hope to extend the agreement in which the league runs Arena for another 30 days, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.

The most recent extension actually ran out at the end of September. (Here’s the most recent PHT post about the arena lease extensions.)

Despite a rotating slew of headaches, Greg Jamison seems determined to find a way to purchase and then finance the team.

The most recent road blocks include a revised lease plan that would give Jamison’s group less leeway in the first five years of the deal and a sales-tax initiative that could get voted down in November.

In the grand scheme of things, it appears that this groundhog day scenario of starts and stops should continue for at least the next month or so. Coyotes fans probably feel like it won’t ever end.

On the bright side, at least Shane Doan isn’t going anywhere.

    Okay they can lock out almost every working and not hold any games. But let’s pay to keep this carrousel of crap going. Can’t wait till the whole season is locked and the imaginary owner keeps blowing millions.

    Memo from a Yotes fan: This is getting old.

    No fat lady yet. As a Coyotes fan this has gotten so old but last I checked every other NHL team is not making money during the lock out. So many concerned about moving this team. Focus all that energy on that big promotion at work balla.

    The poster child….err, team, for the ineptness that is the NHL.

    Moving won’t help. Contraction is what this league needs. If not Pheonix then Columbus or Florida.

    Well! At least another 30 days before the impasse is resolved.
