More rumors of the Arizona Coyotes‘ arena plans, this time courtesy of team CEO Anthony LeBlanc while speaking to fans on Saturday:
- He still expects to make an arena announcement in the next six weeks, but it might be June.
- On the possibility of staying put in Glendale: “I will never say never, but it’s highly, highly unlikely.”
- Playing temporarily at LeBlanc called the possibility of playing temporarily at Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where the Suns played until 1992, is “a long shot.”
Apparently either no fans asked LeBlanc about specific locations or whether he’ll be demanding sales-tax kickbacks, or he chose not to answer. This is all part of the standard “get people talking about where the new arena will go, not whether there should be one” campaign, so expect more of this in the next six weeks, or until June, or whenever.
