So it's been a super busy day in Coyotes land. Let's break down what's happened as fast as I can and there will be more in depth as the night goes on. First and foremost, WE WIN! (Mostly) More...

Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes pleaded with the Glendale City Council on Tuesday to accept $25 million for backing Canadian businessman Jim Balsillie's bid to relocate the team. He squeezed his comments into 2 1/2 minutes allotted to him at the end of a regularly scheduled council meeting. The council could not respond because Moyes' comments were not on the agenda. The longtime Glendale resident said after the meeting that the council "has their head in a hole."

Melnyk offers more thoughts on Balsillie

We haven't heard from all that many NHL owners over the past few months with regards to the Coyotes case, but Melnyk was on the Fan 590 here in Toronto last night and offered those thoughts above...

Surprising no one, Jerry Moyes objects to the sale of the team to Jerry Reinsdorf.

He's saying that the Reinsdorf deal "cannot be approved as a matter of law" and that "there are no qualified bidders" based on terms set by the court. The article also said that there would be more by the deadline for filing objections which is tomorrow.

Dear Mr. Bettman: Why not? It's a simple question being asked by Canadian hockey fans like me. The nation that has the deepest roots and passion for the game of hockey, wants to know why can't we bring a seventh Canadian NHL hockey team to southern Ontario? The NHL has already approved Mr. Balsillie as an NHL owner and in his ruling yesterday Judge Redfield T. Baum recognized that he is an approved NHL owner. It is clear that Hamilton remains the best location for the Coyotes versus letting it wither in the desert. So why not? In his ruling Judge Baum also encouraged the NHL and Jim Balsillie to sit down together in mediation to determine what a fair and reasonable relocation fee would be. Mr. Balsillie has said he's willing to participate in mediation. So why not? We love this game and we know you do too. It's time for discussion. It's time to Make It Seven. Why Not? Sincerely a dedicated Canadian hockey fan.

from an e-mail from makeitseven.ca that they encourage fans to send to Bettman. Something tells me his spam filter will filter this out.
