Coyotes to Stay Put In Phoenix

During tonight's edition of POTG Radio the news broke live on the show that Jim Balsillie had been denied in his quest to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes and move them to Hamilton, Ontario.

It was the most exciting moment in the history of POTG Radio to actually be able to break a huge story as the first bits of information appeared on the Tweetdeck and then multiplied like rabbits with all the major news services getting on board with more details.

The most comprehensive story as of this writing is one by TSN and can be found here.

To add to the excitement, we had Travis Hair of Five for Howling and Matt Prielipp of DaBuzz Media, on with us as the news filtered out. Both Travis an Matt's careers are heavily tied to the Coyotes staying in Phoenix, so to hear the joy in their voice was really exciting.

We will have more details on the breaking story later but would like to congratulate the Phoenix fans, the NHL, and Commissioner Gary Bettman for their victory in this round of the battle to keep the Coyotes in Phoenix.
