New York Post reports Coyotes planning relocation, basically everyone denies it

Yay for anonymous sources!

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Kosman of the New York Post reported Tuesday night, citing two anonymous sources, that the Arizona Coyotes were expected to relocate to Las Vegas for the 2016-17 season under a brand new ownership group.

However, the Coyotes (and pretty much everyone else) say that's not happening.

Hockey fans in the desert have been through this many times before, although Coyotes supporters have had to endure more of this turmoil than in recent seasons due to ongoing strife between the team and the City of Glendale.

However, the story in the Post seems highly unfounded and inaccurate—and it was honestly pretty comical how quickly the team and other prominent media members shot it down.
