For the third time since last summer, it seems inevitable that the Phoenix Coyotes will return to Winnipeg after Ice Edge Holdings "failed to submit the proper paperwork" to the city of Glendale.
Five weeks after the company was supposed to have filed documents to the city, assumingly with financial details. Everybody and their grandmother think that the company doesn't have enough money to buy the team, otherwise it would have been done by now.
The news has been confirmed by James Mirtle and by several good sources, but among the list of people who are sticking their heads in the sand are NHL deputy commish Bill Daly and Ice Edge spokesman Robert Johnson.
May as well just end this thing now and bring the team back to Winnipeg.
