I believe completing the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to Jim Balsillie would be very good for hockey.
One of the NHL’s problems is that they have expanded too quickly into to many non-hockey markets while seemingly ignoring the fact that another Canadian-based team would be very helpful to the game.
Hamilton wants a hockey team and will support it. It could also be the start of a rivalry with Toronto.
To leave the team in Phoenix and watch it die a slow death would be an injustice to hockey fans everywhere.
Commissioner Bettman, let Phoenix relocate to Hamilton; it’s a win-win situation for all.
