I seem to be the fellow who is wandering around the Winnipeg-Phoenix debate oblivious to the toilet paper stuck to his shoe.
Blogger Tyler Dellow points out I goofed on Monday when I mentioned the Canadian teams would not welcome the Phoenix Coyotes back to Winnipeg with open arms because the Canadian television money would eventually be split seven ways instead of six. That was true … in 1988. Since then, all NHL teams get an equal share of all broadcasting revenue, including Canadian television money.
While we're on the topic that will never go away, our Matthew Sekeres is in Phoenix and the word is NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will speak to the media shortly before Tuesday's game between the Coyotes and the Vancouver Canucks. He may or may not enlighten us on what is going on with the municipal bond issue that is key to financing Matthew Hulsizer's bid to buy the Coyotes from the NHL and keep them at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz.
