NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the city of Glendale voting to keep the Phoenix Coyotes in Arizona. After a four hour debate by the city council that was perhaps one of the greatest comedies to watch in recent memory, officials voted 4-3 to approve an agreement that will reportedly keep the Coyotes in Arizona. Though Renaissance Sports and Entertainment and their new partner, Global Spectrum, still have to finalize the agreement with Glendale, it’s expected that the two will agree and that the NHL will eventually approve the decision as well.
NWSB Insider and northwest sports blogger Alistair Corp tells us today that Don Levin has publicly emerged to try to bring an NHL team to the Seattle area, and he’s prepared to spend $100 million. The development popped up three days before King County discusses and votes on investor Chris Hansen’s proposal to build a $490 million NBA and NHL arena. Wayne Gretzky was in town too. Coincidence?
