I say let 'em go back to Canada kcf Send a noteboard - 04/09/2009 08:59:46 PM
I live in Arizona and was in the Phoenix area for 10 years when they first moved there. The Coyotes have made bad decision after bad decision since they got here.

The worst decision came when they wanted to build a new arena - they built it in Glendale (a suburb way on the west side of town). By doing this they made it relatively impossible for half the city to come to their games and cut it off from future access to good public transportation (the light rail system that's open now).

I attended games semi-regularly when they were downtown, but haven't seen one since they moved. I know lots of people like this. Combined with the fact that who knows what TV station hockey comes on these days, they never had a chance to build up a good base - heck demographics of the Phoenix area alone would have let them know that the majority of Canadian ex-pats in the Phoenix area live in Scottsdale, which is about 40 mi. from Glendale.

A clean start in Canada will be the best thing for them at this point (and not many people in Arizona will notice when they leave).
