As we pass the two year anniversary of our team being put into bankruptcy by it's previous owner, I can only wish that this post carried to you better news. However, we still remain in limbo and a new owner is not yet in place.
The latest reports tell us that new financing is in the works but that it will take more time. I remain optimistic that a deal can be worked out and that we will eventually be able to celebrate together when a new ownership group takes over the reins.
For now we still have some work to do...
This Tuesday night the Glendale City Council will vote to set aside an additional 25 million dollars for the NHL to keep the team in Glendale for at least another season. The money will cover the losses - should they incur any (I am playing the part of the optimist). I'm writing to request your presence Coyotes fans - in your Coyotes gear - at the city council meeting this Tuesday night.
It's important for Glendale to know that we are still here and that we still support them in their efforts.
For those of you who are out of state or out of country, we appreciate your continued support as well. You can find a list of email addresses for the Glendale City Council Members here. If you are unable to physically be at the meeting, an email of support to the City Council Members would also be appreciated. I know many of you enjoy traveling to Glendale each year to see the Coyotes, let the Council members know that!

The meeting will be held at 7:00 pm Tuesday May 10, 2011 at Glendale City Council Chambers.
