from David Shoalts and Paul Waldie of the Globe and Mail,
While even the leaders of a group of Canadian and American businessmen admit their 11th-hour attempt to buy the Phoenix Coyotes is a long shot, they will find an attentive audience when they face the NHL’s board of governors tomorrow in Chicago….
In addition to taking part in the examination of the Ice Edge group, they will also question Jim Balsillie about his bid for the team and his relocation plans. Balsillie, the co-chief executive officer of Research In Motion Ltd., has offered $212.5-million (U.S.) for the Coyotes on the condition he can move the team to Hamilton.
From Dan Barnes at the Edmonton Journal,
The sale of the Oilers to Edmonton billionaire Daryl Katz has been approved by the National Hockey League’s Board of Governors.
A source said the approval was granted earlier this morning during the governors meeting in New York.
Rexall Sports, the Katz Group company that purchased the Oilers for $200 million from the Edmonton Investors Group, will now proceed to close the sale on or before June 30 by issuing cheques to the 34 EIG members.
