Phoenix Coyotes file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection; Balsillie's name in play

Not a good day for fans of the Desert Dogs, but lo and behold, the league has spoken: The NHL, which has said the Coyotes won’t relocate, issued a statement saying it is investigating the proprietary of the filing. HOWEVER... "I am excited to move closer to bringing an NHL franchise to what I believe is one of the best un-served hockey markets in the world, southern Ontario," (potential buyer Jim) Balsillie said in his statement. "A market with devoted hockey fans, a rich hockey history, a growing and diversified economy and a population of more than 7 million people." Tragic. The world knows my position on relocations, but in Phoenix's case, there may simply be no alternative. The franchise is in deep doodoo. I freaked out and lost bodily control several months ago upon seeing a Research in Motion skybox at the BankAtlantic Center. Ugly. Head over to Five for Howling for full coverage.
