Watch As Gary Bettman Pleas For Support To Save The Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes are a train wreck. They’re an NHL team in a 5000-seat college hockey arena, and there’s no sign of a real permanent future home in Arizona.

Despite this, Gary Bettman will not abandon his project. He supports the Coyotes and has the power to keep them in Tempe.

Gary Bettman appeared before the Tempe City Council this morning to explain why the Coyotes should remain in Arizona.

“I have a little bit of experience with the Coyotes it’s been an interesting ride I don’t think anybody can doubt our support.

It will shine a light on Tempe. We will bring league events here, whether it’s an All-Star Game or a Draft. That’s our commitment to you if this project goes forward.”

He also confirmed the 30-year no-relocation clause if the $1.7 billion project is approved by the council.

The city council decided to put it to a public vote, and Gary Bettman made the following plea to fans:

Hopefully, this will force the NHL to find a new home for the Coyotes, but given how far they’ll go to keep them in Arizona, it’s unlikely.

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: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
