from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
Obviously, if the NHL is faced with relocating another franchise—those options may have to be legitimately explored in the coming weeks or months with regards to the long-term future of the Phoenix Coyotes—the most logical landing-spot candidates are Seattle, Quebec City, Kansas City and perhaps Las Vegas.
But interested parties in Saskatoon have contacted the league and suggested there are individuals or parties in Saskatoon who would be willing to ante up the required purchase fee while various levels of government in Saskatchewan would make necessary arrangements to expand and make NHL-suitable the 15,800-seat Credit Union Centre….
Meanwhile, the NHL continues to focus on negotiations with three groups who have expressed varying degrees of interest in buying the Coyotes from the NHL and working out a deal with the City of Glendale to keep the franchise there long-term. But if those negotiations don’t progress in the coming weeks, it’s believed the NHL willl have no other option but to begin pursuing a parallel track to look at its relocation options while still trying to make the Phoenix scenario work.
