Looking For a History of Coyotes Troubles


Waleslax

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am looking for information on the history of the Coyotes financial troubles. I am also looking for information on the decision to put the team in Phoenix to begin with. I figured this would be the place to get pointed in the right direction.

Thank you!

Ha, ha, I know the deal with the Coyotes, the problem I am having is that I can't find a good timeline of their financial woes or much to do with numbers. I am writing a behavioral finance paper, and it is interesting to see the heuristics and biases that Gary Bettman had when the team was moved. What is most amazing is a) how wrong he was and B) how the financial problems in the US/with the Coyotes today mirror so closely the problems with Canada/ the Winnipeg market in 1995/6.

Any serious information would go a long way towards helping me. Thanks guys!

Oddball's sarcasm detection meter needs an adjustment.

My sarcasm meter needs adjusting? Actually, I thought it was sarcasm, but figured I'd post info on it for people who didn't know. Does my sarcasm meter need adjusting? Yes. I need to be more sarcastic. :P

For what it's worth... I did find the humour in that response... ^_^

I removed the link as the OP had multiple requests here and it was previously answered. My apologies.

To go along with the Jets moved to Phoenix the backing to the Economics being that the Old Barn Winnipeg Arena couldn't generate revenue and that there was no suitable facility to take the Jets thus one of the key reasons the move to the desert.

The source is an old article from the Calgary Herald but no internet source

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potential_Nat...ion_into_Canada

Scroll down to number 26 in the sources part.

Although interest for getting an NHL franchise back to Winnipeg is unlimited but mostly from a fan's and media's perspective no possible owner has shown any interest in returning a team to Winnipeg.
