Another Investor For The Coyotes?

from John Shannon of Sportsnet,

With stories about relocation of the Phoenix Coyotes to Quebec surfacing, sources very familiar with the Glendale situation have told Sportsnet that a group of Canadian investors are on the verge of finalizing a deal with the NHL to purchase the troubled Arizona hockey team.

The key investor is Albertan George Gosbee, who is leading a small group of investors, including Anthony Leblanc and his former Ice Edge partners.

Why would any potential new owner want to keep the team in Glendale?

Every time the media starts speculating about the Coyotes being moved, the NHL trots out a new potential buyer who is very close to a deal that never gets finalized.

Gosbee founded AltaCorp Capital, a new Canadian investment bank in 2010. As well, he is cochair of AIMCo (Alberta Investment Management corp), a $70 billion investment fund.

Another NSH-type of ownership:  nine billionaires in it for nothing more than a tax break.

I’m going to go ahead and call it right now: the next ‘new investor’ will be Shane Doan and his Kickstarter.
