Gary Bettman discusses situation of Arizona Coyotes and potential relocation to Salt Lake City

Gary Bettman must be tired of talking about the situation of the Arizona Coyotes every day 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

This is a great opportunity for the NHL to showcase its finest talents, its finalist markets, and announce good news. The commissioner will never run away from it, however, until it is settled; As long as the Coyotes are struggling, this will be the most interesting topic in the eyes of the media.

Yesterday, Bettman had to reiterate that the goal was still to keep the Coyotes in Arizona, something that was not stated in the league’s press release sent out minutes after the Tempe citizens’ referendum.

He also had to explain why he was so patient with this market, again explaining that it is one of the biggest cities in North America, and listing several circumstances that have harmed the organization without she can control it.

Bill Daly, however, confirmed that the city of Salt Lake City represents a real bid to host the club, should a move be considered. The League has heard directly from the group of Ryan Smith, owner of the NBA Jazz, who has expressed interest in hosting a hockey team in the arena that is currently used for basketball team operations.

Well, getting news directly from a specific group doesn’t actually mean anything – François Legault and PKP can attest to this, but Pierre LeBrun believes it’s the NHL’s best option for a move, while Houston and Atlanta would be more targeted for an expansion club.

Note that among the English-language media, which are aware of the situation, Quebec City is almost never mentioned. Unsurprisingly, you might say, but important to mention to temper expectations.
