    Being from Winnipeg I sometimes lose objectivity but being totally objective. I think the powers that be (NHL, COG and MH) have already made a decision as to what they are going to be doing. Wether it is selling the bonds anyway or pulling the plug. I believe it's the latter, do to the lack of chirping going on about anything of substance. If they were going to sell bonds we should have heard about it last week, if not this weekend. I give them till wensday if they haven't sold them... :help:

    “Listen, lad. I built this thread up from nothing. When I started here, all there was was swamp. Other kings said I was daft to build a thread on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a IInd one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a IIIrd one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the IVth one...

    So I built an XXXth thread. That one is pining for the fjords. No. 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! That thread is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THAT IS AN EX-THREAD!!

    But the XXXIst one stayed up! And that's what you're gonna get, lad: the strongest thread in these boards.â€

  4. Or, if they are going to bite the bullet and somehow keep the team for one more year, work out the money details later, in the interest of the league... Atlanta is on a 5 game road trip, have 2 final home games next week. This week would be a perfect time to make an announcement, if the Coyotes are in fact staying, however that may be.

    To the person who mentioned Gretzky finding investors and buying the team back...he's still owed money.

    This has probably been talked about, and it's pretty obvious that MH's guarantee of 75 million is meaningless. However I'll throw this out and there, maybe someone could explain it and see if I'm on to something.

    MH's guarantee is that the arena profits 75 million over 30 years? Is this correct? Or is it simply that it brings in 75 million? Without taking into consideration expenses?

    MH is receiving 97 million over 5 years from COG to manage the arena. How could he only guarantee 75 million over 30 years when he gets 97 million over 5 years for managing it?
    How is that?

    Maybe Glendale will agree to give him a subsidy of $108 million.

    Without getting off topic IMO the NHL has one thing on their front burner and that is the Phoenix Coyotes. However the Coyotes deal plays out determines what happens in other markets.

    coyotes last home game is april 8th, last regular season game is april 9th.

    my guess is that SOMEONE has to say SOMETHING at that time.

    Agreed. Plus the Coyotes organization has never made it out of the first round. If that trend continues, then they'll be out by the end of April and I would think that something would be announced at that point.

    If there's no announcement made, then obviously relocation isn't going to happen for next season, and I would anticipate that the NHL will be granting the CoG and MH more time to get the deal done.

    I don't see the other owners agreeing to losing more money next season, they will want a solution.

    Of course, I thought we were close to the end 2 months ago. I FEEL LIKE IM TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!

    Just have to keep hoping that the situation will be resolved somehow. Seems like we've been stuck at a giant standoff forever. GWI isn't going to back away and it doesn't seem like MH is going to just going to forget the whole $100 million thing and just pay more money for the team. Hopefully something will give before too many people go mad.

    In the previous thread, Dado made the following somewhat stunning statement:

    If true, then this certainly does raise some interesting questions. Perhaps this is a three-way stalemate between Hulsizer, Glendale and the NHL, with GWI having them penned in. Perhaps Glendale is waiting to see if Hulsizer or the NHL blink and improve the terms so that they can get rid of the GWI and lower the bond rates and their costs. Perhaps Hulsizer and the NHL are holding firm, and expecting that perhaps Glendale will issue the bonds even if the rate is uncomfortably high. In the meantime, all three parties are hoping that the GWI will let them out of limbo without anyone changing the terms of the deal.

    One thing to consider is that Glendale is facing really tough economic times, and even with a lower rate on the bonds, they are really up against it with the arena management fee obligations. The last city council vote was only 4:3 in favour, and perhaps there is at least one councilor who feels that anything above 6% or 7% on the bonds is too high.

    We should know within a month or two, I guess. Who's writing the book on this, again?

    So if this deal falls through is relocation the only option left? Or will the NHL still pursue owners who will keep the team in Glendale?

    I hope there won't be XXXI more thread before this situation resolves.
