from Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic,
A window is open. The fresh scent of optimism is in the air. There’s a growing hope that the Coyotes could land a new owner by the end of next week.
Wouldn’t that be a fitting 100th birthday present for the state of Arizona?
For now, there are only whispers. But Jerry Colangelo hears potential buyers are “milling around.” Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick said he’s been approached by Greg Jamison, the former San Jose Sharks CEO who is trying to raise sufficient funds. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman recently said there’s a third party involved, joining the Jamison Group and Chicago sports mogul Jerry Reinsdorf.
One source said this third party is not only very real, but extremely wealthy and spending serious money on due diligence. That’s a great sign. And you can’t help but notice the renewed faith in the voice of Coyotes coach Dave Tippett.
