I wonder what sweetheart deal Jamison's group is going to get? I still won't believe anything about the team staying there until the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. This whole fiasco has been such a mess I can still see this falling through. Coyotes fans should be happy though, the NHL jumped through hoops to keep the team there.
If this goes through I feel bad for Quebec fans. They've been waiting patiently for years, just broke ground on a new arena, doing the renovations on the Colisee, and they still may not have a team. While I am against expansion, I think the NHL talent pool is too thin to support 32 teams, I can see it happening under Bettman. Getting say Quebec City and Seattle to pay the huge expansion fee would be popular amongst NHL owners. Plus it would fit into the whole 4 conference realignment thing that was talked about.
