07:29 AM ET 08.06 | "Here to stay" is the new theme in the desert, as the Coyotes ownership finally traded hands, something George Gosbee and Anthony LeBlanc addressed in a conference call. [@azc_mclellan:] #Coyotes won't be a cap team but plan is to increase player payroll and increase that budget each season. ... LeBlanc categorizes ownership group as one that will be "hands-on" but on the business side. Rates hockey ops as one of best in the league. ... Name change to Arizona #Coyotes won't happen until 2014-15, at the earliest. Following example of #Cardinals #Dbacks in reaching beyond Phx. ... Gosbee said ownership model follows what #Flames did when moving from Atlanta in having multiple members. ... LeBlanc also addressed the out clause. Said they have to protect investment but none expect to fail.

I think Shiprock's warmed up to the idea of relocation. The wolf howl is getting to him too. :-)

They may have to change the definition of "Coyote Ugly".

This article must have been a compilation of Twitters and certainly reads that way.

They give the Phoenix Cardinals as an example. I've always wondered how many Cardinals they have in Arizona.

I'm so happy this crappy story was presented in such a crappy manner! As if I didn't hate the Coyotes story enough...this whole ordeal makes me want to see JR dress up in his old uni and get his jaw broken again.

Well, now that they have ownership, and will spend more money, let's see if there is a fan base there.

Shiprock would come and get you for that but he's having his scooter serviced today. ;-)

They just have to tell them they changed the name. They won't know the difference.

Old folks are notoriously cheap Danny. He plugs it in at his neighbours when he's not home.
