08:24 AM ET 09.02 | The Phoenix Coyotes may have more interest. Matthew Hulsizer, CEO of PEAK6 Investments is in the final stages of negotiating a new arena lease agreement with the City of Glendale after which Hulsizer is expected to make an offer to purchase the Coyotes from the NHL, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN.com. The emergence of the Chicago-based financier and former collegiate hockey player comes at a time when negotiations between Ice Edge Holdings, a group of Canadian and American investors who have been pursuing the team for more than a year, and Glendale officials have stalled.

Matthew Hulsizer, CEO of PEAK6 Investments?

I always suspected the mystery man was Professor Plum Stupid (read: Evil Dwarf) in the arena with a monkey wrench.

I was thinking more along the lines of if you're thinking of buying the Desert Dogs and keeping them in Arizona, a noose should be included...If you catch my drift.

I'm sure it is. Just like his big, plastic, squeaky hammer. (Damn Hank - there's that song again.)

My guess would be to get better terms for himself. Glendale is in the middle of nowhere, but I believe the Yotes are locked into that arena for some time to come. This link might help.

If he doesn't get a new deal he plans to move them to that hot bed of hockey insanity.......Dubai! They've got 126 Zamboni's there but no rinks. Bettman is all for it. Increases the international viewership you know.

CEO means you can do anything you want there's no one above you on the food chain
Notice his title isn't CFO (Chief Financial Officer)

The big question is can he not only make a winning team in the desert, but can he make money doing it too. The Yotes are leased to Glendale for awhile yet if I remember right. It's going to cost him a buttload of money to get them out of that lease if he cant make money with them. Are there enough fans in AZ to make money if they could ice a consistant winner?

That's where the filing for bankruptcy comes in as it just makes them a creditor that's what Balisille was attempting the "End Around" the lease
