Bob McCown of radio station FAN 590 and journalist David Shoalts discussed the fact that a crucial $100 million public bond issue failed, potentially derailing the $170 million sale of the Phoenix Coyotes. It’s true that the Coyotes could find a private deal to drum up that big chunk of change, but both McCown and Shoalts agree that finding a private avenue would be very unlikely.
Does this mean that we’re going to see a rebirth of the Winnipeg Jets or the Quebec Nordiques anytime soon? Not necessarily, but if they cannot find that $100 million, there’s a threat that the Coyotes won’t play in Phoenix much longer.
As McCown discussed, the NHL has denied the failed public bond, so this is far from official. Still, it’s a situation to watch, as the Coyotes’ future in the desert might be in jeopardy once again.
Here’s an easy way to remember how to spell Shayne Gostisbehere’s maddening last name (and even his first name can trip you up).
Ghost-is-be-here, without the h.
Not too bad, right?
If you’re more of the slogan type, it’s getting to be the point where “Tough to spell, tougher to stop” may be a pretty good one-liner.
The Philadelphia Flyers phenom has made a habit of scoring overtime game-winning goals on the power play lately. Friday’s version was the decisive tally in a 3-2 OT win against the Nashville Predators, which you can watch up top.
As you can see in comparing that goal with the one below (which made the difference against the Carolina Hurricanes), opposing coaches may want to make it a point to emphasize stopping this setup, even if it means writing “Don’t let that Ghost kid free.”
All three of his goals are on the power play so far.
Will he breathe life back into the Flyers’ man advantage at this rate?
The goalie interference penalty called on Brad Marchand late in Friday’s Thanksgiving Showdown didn’t sit well with the Bruins.
Marchand, whistled after making contact with New York’s Henrik Lundqvist midway through the third, said he thought “it was a bit of a weak call,” adding “[Lundvqist’s] out of the crease, and he lightly gets touched.”
While Marchand took issue with the call, his head coach took issue with King Henrik.
