Phoenix Coyotes File for Bankruptcy

Is the joke in the desert finally coming to an end?

In 1996, Winnipeg was stripped of its hockey team, the Jets, and were moved to Arizona to form the soon-to-be-defunct Coyotes. It seems like Arizona would be the last place to move a hockey team and it’s showing as Jerry Moyes has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

The NHL has taken the team over and RIM CEO Jim Balsillie intends to buy the club in order to move them back to Canada. However, Glendale and the NHL are going to attempt to block the move. Why, who knows. The crappy ticket sales are what’s putting the team under, because no one in Glendale cares about hockey. It’s like a bad relationship: at some point there gonna part ways, and it was only a matter of time.

In my opinion, the Coyotes, the Nashville Predators, and the Atlanta Thrashers should all be moved to Canada. The NHL has no market in either place and it’s a waste of money to try and keep them here.
