Afternoon Line

I'm probably always going to remain very optimistic. Maybe to a fault, but I'm very optimistic that it's going to get done in the next few days. People always say, 'They've been telling you the same thing for three years.' It's different now. Mr. Jamison has been cleared by the league. He has the money in escrow. The lease agreement was done already once, so the core issues of it are done. Everything's in place. We just need the city to sign off on it because everything else is done. And the city, obviously the deal with the city has been worked and talked about so much and the city has been helping out with keeping the Coyotes here and they've done so much. It's not like anyone's saying it's up to them, but that's the last piece. If that can get done, then everything is really in place for this franchise not just to survive but flourish and I'm excited about that.;

I can appreciate that Shane is probably being propped up by the organization to be the talking head here, as he has a lot of credibility with the fanbase, but I can’t think that even he believes this.
