Okay, so the National Hockey League can’t seem to figure it out. In fact, it’s a weird situation. Everyone involved in the NHL and NHLPA labor negotiations wants the season to begin, the players to play, and the league to make money, no matter how the revenue ends up being shared.
Apart from the lockout, one NHL team is making a move. The Phoenix Coyotes are moving from Phoenix to Glendale, Arizona. No, the team hasn’t changed its name from the Phoenix Coyotes to the Glendale Coyotes, but instead the team has taken over the entire state of Arizona. Glendale has pledged $320 million over the next 20 years to have the hockey team play in Glendale. Since Arizona has only one professional Hockey team, changing the team name from the capitol of the state to the entire state wasn’t an issue. Unfortunately for the people of Glendale their town will not appear in the new name of the team.
