Minor League Talk For Phoenix

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Anthony LeBlanc and his group of businessmen once known as Ice Edge Holdings are back in the Phoenix hockey picture.

Only this time it is not to make an ownership bid on the financially moribund Phoenix Coyotes but to manage Jobing.com Arena in suburban Glendale and try to bring in a minor-league hockey team if the Coyotes move to another city this summer.

On Mar. 1, LeBlanc sent an e-mail message to Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs, city attorney Craig Tindall and each member of city council. It was prompted by Scruggs’ public musings the city needs a “Plan B” if the Coyotes leave.

Not sure what they’re thinking. Phoenix draws AHL numbers with NHL teams. What will they do with AHL or ECHL hockey in the desert?

Redxblack - my thoughts exactly.

My guess is probably host a lot of monster truck rallys and gun & knife shows?
