As it stands now, the Coyotes and 28-year-old general manager John Chayka have a lot of work to do. Team owner Andrew Barroway bought out the rest of the team's minority owners in early June and now owns the team outright. But the Coyotes problems are not just on the ice or behind the bench. The orgnanization's current lease deal in Glendale is up after next season, so there will be tense negotiations and the threat of moving the club to another part of Arizona or out of the area entirely. According to Forbes, the team loses about $8 million annually and is valued at about $240 million.
Tip was not a fan of Mike Smith trade, not a fan of how things went down w/Shane Doan. Don't think relationship with Barroway was working.— Craig Morgan (@craigsmorgan) June 23, 2017
