    I doubt the coyotes are involved in any way, but good to see the district going to a big in state player.

    Well there's a rich AZ resident closer to the team anyway. Maybe he'll go to a game and GET interested.
    Asked whether Parsons or YAM Properties is worried about the Coyotes' future at Westgate, Dahl said he did not want to comment on speculation.
    Parsons has not considered buying the Coyotes, or the arena, Dahl said.

    Bob Parsons would be a fun owner to follow, kinda Mark Cuban like. I don't see the NHL liking him!!!! And yes I know that isn't what's happening.

    I don't think the NHL would like him, they would love him. Could you imagine the marketing Parsons would come up with if he owned the Coyotes. Money talks in these circles.

    The NHL doesn't tend to like those who don't tow the company line, that certainly isn't Parsons. I don't picture him as someone who would give a poop about any team but his own.

    I worked around Bob Parsons for years in my previous career and while the NHL would love his wallet, they wouldn't like his methods.

    Interesting, but many business people play on the edge, and sometimes the methods are questioned. Do you really think all the other NHL owners are squeaky clean?

    How do you know he wouldn't tow the company line? Because of his marketing?

    You read any papers or watch any news??? Parsons just doesn't follow along, he changes how things are generally done in everything he touches. Check out his golf course and it's previous Members for exhibit A. The Old Boys Club of owners woukd cringe at the thought and Bettman generally runs a tight ship.

    It's not the cleanliness of his methods. It's that his particular brand of pushing the envelope isn't the same as the NHL's, and we have ample evidence that guys like that are not welcome in the Boys' Club that is the Board of Governors.

    You guys are reading too much into it. I believe the NHL would welcome Parson's with open arms if he wanted to buy the Yotes. Love to see what our ads would look like. :)

    Exactly. Parsons would get plenty of publicity for the Coyotes. Maybe, if he has no interest in the Coyotes, they can hire him for marketing. This team lacks so much in that area.

    I don't know anything about Parsons, but based off these posts he sounds like the Hurricanes owner. Fair comparison?

    Everyone has their price. If he can stabilize the team and stop the bleeding, that's worth $$$ to the other owners.

    "the thought of buying the thing that anchors the property never crossed our minds..."

    riiiight.

    There are colorful owners that aren’t meddlesome.

    Parsons and the Coyotes have nothing to do with each other and never will
