The Arizona Coyotes situation is becoming increasingly nebulous. After all, time is running out to save the franchise’s future in Arizona.

On June 27, there will be an auction in Arizona for the rights to a piece of land that would be perfect for building an arena. But if the Coyotes don’t win the auction in Scottsdale (which is possible because the file isn’t necessarily going well)… it could be the end.

There is a scenario in which the Coyotes would sell their club to Ryan Smith for $1.2 billion. This would include the sale of the club, but also a relocation fee that would go to the other owners in the league.

Let’s also remember that Ryan Smith had done Gary Bettman a favor a few months ago by publicly mentioning his interest in a club on the day it was announced that several players from the 2018 edition of Junior Team Canada were officially in trouble.

Meanwhile, in Quebec City…
