NEW YORK (AP) - Potential owner Jim Balsillie had filed an application for the relocation of the Phoenix Coyotes, a move expected to happen later this week.
Balsillie told The Canadian Press late Monday night that he filed the application with the league office. It includes details why he believes the NHL should consider his proposal to purchase the team for $212.5 million and bring it to Hamilton, Ontario.
"We put together all of the elements of the design, the market and updating the facility and stuff like that," Balsillie said. "It's an important and comprehensive document. ...
"Really this is all about for me just complying with the league rules and regulations."
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly declined to comment when
contacted by e-mail.
