Phoenix Coyotes Return From Olympics Break
When the NHL season opened last fall, there was actually optimism in the Valley. The Phoenix Coyotes actually had new ownership that seemed to want to keep the team here and was willing to spend some money, at least more than the NHL, which was recently running the organization.
