How The Coyotes Cheapskated Themselves Out Of Arizona

With the Coyotes fate in Arizona is disarray, it appears that the Coyotes may have beaten themselves.

The Coyotes will need to hunt for a new home after Tempe residents decisively rejected their proposal for an arena.

In an article from NHL insider, Frank Seravalli, he reported that:

“The Coyotes side has spent less than $250,000 to activate the vote, opting for a bootstrap campaign, while the opposition has spent upwards of $2 million, backed by high-power labor unions who have not received a guarantee that they will be the ones building the project.” – Frank Seravalli

It is obvious that the Yotes cut corners when it mattered most and now face relocation given that the Coyotes opposition spent more than 8 times as much on campaigning as the Coyotes did.

Many cities, including Quebec, Houston, Salt Lake City, and Sacramento, seem to be in the running to host the Coyotes when they relocate.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
