from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
It’s all in the numbers. The Phoenix Coyotes aren’t moving to Hamilton. Jim Balsillie’s campaign to have the Coyotes relocated to Canada is toast. His Make it Seven campaign now can be called Keep it Six.
So what else did you expect, even though Balsillie’s spokesman suggested “we’re still here” in reply to the ruling on Monday by U.S. Bankruptcy Court chief judge Redfield T. Baum?
“We look forward to hearing from the NHL soon on its view of our relocation application and an appropriate relocation fee, so as to allow the court to determine if that fee is reasonable,” the Balsillie spokesman added. “We still think there is enough time for the NHL to approve Mr. Balsillie’s application and move the team to Hamilton by September. Mr. Balsillie is willing to participate in mediation if the NHL is also willing to do so.”
Hmph! What part of the NHL’s reaction to the bomb Judge Baum tossed doesn’t he understand?
