08:25 AM ET 11.08 | Just what the Coyotes needed: Another hurdle to remaining in Arizona. Glendale voters on Tuesday decisively selected Republican Jerry Weiers to succeed their outgoing mayor, Elaine Scruggs, and in doing so further complicated their relationship with the Coyotes. Weiers ran on a platform of reining in spending and was highly critical of the City Council???s pending financial deal with Jamison for managing Glendale???s city-owned Jobing.com Arena. ... With new executive leadership, Glendale could very well end up rebuffing the Coyotes and their demands from the city. With the team under NHL ownership, having already gone through bankruptcy, the Coyotes could be up for grabs if Jamison???s purchase falls through. Which could mean good news for Seattle hockey fans.

Heck no. I think every taxpayer in Phoenix should pledge to have his taxes increase every year so that the Coyotes can continue to fail in the desert. It's only fair.

The Seattle area has too many hockey fans. Bettman will send the Coyotes to Kansas City instead.

If the 'Yotes do pull up and move, I am 99.9% sure it will not be to Seattle. Two other places need/deserve a team, have willing ownership, and arenas. Seattle is so much of a gamble at this point it makes no sense.

The lack of an arena presents a logistical hassle also :-)

I'll just send that 'Hot Clicks' girl>>over Jerry Weiers house. Problem solved.

Coyotes can continue to fail in the desert....Like one TV guy said they were only 7 wins from the Cup. (I still laugh when I think about it) Clueless in Glendale.

I love that line. I wish I'd thought of it.

Maybe next season I will. :-)

Seriously, lose the Habs photo and talk all you want. Keeping it in there and Leaf-bashing outta nowhere right now is like ripping Obama with a Mitt Romney photo. Yeah, your party had Abe Lincoln, but right now you've got Mitt effing Romney.

What's wrong...is it snowing in Toronto?

Are we going to have to send in the army again?

You lost me. WTF does Obama/Romney have to do with an NHL franchise in Arizona, or a Habs avatar, or the Leafs, bashing or not? BTW, I don't think Obama, Romney or Abe Lincoln ever played hockey? Besides, after watching $6 billion dollars worth of ads in the last year, disruptions at my airport when a candidate arrives and receiving HUNDREDS of useless robo-calls (how did Bill Clinton and Sarah Palin get my number?) I'm tired of all of it.

I have no idea about internal politics vis a vis Toronto and anyplace else in Canada. It's really none of my business anyway. But, in the interests of honesty I must admit I do enjoy the Leaf critics and their comments. Without them I'd have to start bashing only the Caps. The Leafs haven't won the Cup since 1967.....the Caps didn't start until 1974-75 and we haven't ever won it.

Either move the Yotes to a city that wants an NHL Team or contract the franchise.....

Danny Danny Danny are you talking QC or S Ontario not happening that will be the league's 31st and 32nd teams if the team doesn't go to Seattle expect Las Vegas or Portland as they are already having problems moving teams east/west but the arena deal in Seattle counts on 100 million (100 million for an NBA franchise too) being pledged by local government if they bring an NHL franchise to town. About the only way I don't see the Coyotes moving to Seattle (if they lose their subsidy) is if Gaglardi pulls stakes in Dallas and brings his team to the Pacific Northwest 1st
