Goodbye to the ‘Yotes?

I’m hardly an expert on the situation in Phoenix, so I won’t bloviate on it. I will note that I was out there for work last fall (didn’t make it to a Coyotes game, unfortunately) and it was pretty striking in the local papers and news just how hard-hit that area has been by the bursting of the real estate bubble. Home values in some areas that have declined by half. It’s hard to see any franchise not running into trouble, regardless of what other issues they may or may not have. I’m just sad for the fans who it looks like will be losing their team.

Some decent reads on the ‘Yotes difficulties, the Balsillie offer, etc:

I’ll be in Toronto for half of next week, so I’m sure to hear lots more then.
