to think that some person, 200 or 300 miles away from glendale is now going to run out and buy a Coyotes jersey because they changed the name from Phoenix to Arizona just doesnt seem like reasonable thinking to me....

do you think someone in Thompson is refusing to support the jets because there called Winnipeg instead of Manitoba?

Fair enuff.

I cant compare it to up here because i think it a whole different thing. People here are nuts over hockey so they will buy whatever and come from wherever to watch.

Will people come from all over to watch the yotes ... i really have no idea..  but i wouldnt call it stupid thinking on their part.

They are trying to do whatever they can to get fans... so i cant call it stupid thinking.

moving a hockey team out of a desert is the smartest thing they can do

We hope the name 'Arizona' will encourage more fans from all over the state, not just the valley, to embrace and support our team

this is such stupid thinking

I agree. That doesn't seem like a sound business plan at all. The Coyotes have struggled to attract fans since they moved to Phoenix. Changing a name won't suddenly fix that problem. There is simply not a viable market for hockey in the desert.

I agree, the name is irrelevant, if people dont care, then people dont care.

and in arizona, people dont go there to watch hockey, they go there to get away from hockey really and to play golf.

Its just not a good market, to be honest, if it was, well... someone would have made 5 cents off of it by now and also.

This is a way for that group to tell the NHL they tried everything they could, even changed the name and still cant make a nickle. That team is so moving in a couple seasons, seattle get ready, they are coming your way soon.

people can talk quebec all they want or toronto... not happening, if those places happen it will be VIA expansion for sure... cuz thats big big money for the owners and the players would get none of it.

I sure hope there is no expansion before they get the teams they have now that are struggling on more solid ground. There are a few teams that need to be moved first and then they can think of expanding.

phoenix and  floria definitely come to mind.

florida is already in the montreal toronto ottawa division so one would think that maybe if a team was to move to quebec/souther ontario that florida would be the no brainer.

From TSN:

Ryan Miller and Steve Ott have been traded to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, William Carrier, a first-round draft pick in 2015 and a third-round draft pick in 2016.
Rest of story at this link: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=444922

Also from TSN, because of the trade:

Ryan Vinz is playing backup. Ryan Vinz is paid to be the Director of Technology.

Ryan Vinz is living the dream...

Wouldn't be pleasant to be traded from St. Louis to buffalo. I think the Blues will go deep in the playoffs...the sabres - not so much, golf course for them...
