#1 but made a concession on the deal von lebaobei123 02.04.2019 03:28

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes took a big step toward stability Tuesday night when the Glendale City Council ratified an arena lease agreement with a prospective owner of the franchise. After making a few alterations, the council voted 4-3 in favour on a 15-year, US$225 million lease agreement with Renaissance Sports & Entertainment during a special session. The vote clears the way for RSE to purchase the Coyotes from the NHL, which has been running the team the past four years. The paperwork from Tuesday night has to be signed and completed by July 8th and RSE has to close the deal by August 5th. The team is now expected to be rebranded the Arizona Coyotes. RSE is led by Canadian businessmen George Gosbee and Anthony LeBlanc. The decision had been in doubt as RSE and the city went through tense negotiations over the past few weeks. The Coyotes may have relocated to another municipality, potentially Quebec City, if an agreement was not reached. RSE may have swung the vote in its favour earlier in the day when it announced a partnership with Global Spectrum, which owns the Philadelphia Flyers, to help manage Jobing.com Arena. RSE must finalize its lease agreement with Glendale and its purchase of the team by Aug. 5. The meeting attracted hundreds of Coyotes fans and Glendale residents, who showed their pleasure or displeasure in the chambers by putting their thumbs up and down. An overflow crowd downstairs in the employee lounge also cheered and booed at a closed-circuit monitor. The meeting also was attended by Coyotes general manager Don Maloney and player Derek Morris, along with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly, who received a rare standing ovation as they entered the chambers. RSE reached a deal to buy the Coyotes from the NHL last month and spent several weeks negotiating with Glendale for an arena lease deal, the final hurdle in its attempt to purchase the franchise. After weeks of back and forth, RSE accepted numerous revisions to an initial draft of the lease agreement, including a $50,000 payment to the city if the Coyotes play less than 41 games, but stood firm on an out clause for the city. The city had asked for the clause to match a provision that allows RSE to relocate the team after five years or if it accrues $50 million in losses. Nick Wood, a lawyer representing RSE, said the out clause was out of the question, but made a concession on the deal, offering to pay the city any losses in revenue above $6 million should the team be relocated. After a long debate, the council agreed to vote on an amended lease agreement without the clause. The city also was concerned about a $15 million fee to manage Jobing.com Arena. Glendale budgeted $6 million to operate the arena, but RSE projected between $8.5 and $11 million in revenue from arena naming rights, parking, rent, ticket surcharges and other streams to make up the difference. RSE added a provision in the deal that called for it to pay the difference if revenues dont cover the $6 million the city has budgeted to run the arena. After a council meeting that lasted about four hours, the council voted in favour of the deal despite reservations from some councilmembers. The partnership with Global Spectrum may have been the turning point. A subsidiary of international sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectator, Philadelphia-based Global Spectrum manages 113 facilities around the world, including the Wells Fargo Center, home of the Flyers. The company also operates University of Phoenix Stadium, the home of the Arizona Cardinals thats on the south end of the Westgate Entertainment District where Jobing.com Arena is located. RSE has projected $8.5 million to $11 million in revenue to Glendale, which budgeted $6 million to manage Jobing.com Arena. Bringing in Global Spectrum would likely increase the number of non-hockey event dates at the arena and RSEs LeBlanc called the partnership the final piece of the deal. The NHL has operated the Coyotes since former owner Jerry Moyes took the team into bankruptcy in 2009. After numerous suitors came forward and fell back through the years, the franchise is finally headed toward a stable future.

Brodeur, the winningest goalie in NHL history, gutted out a 3-2 Devils victory over Lundqvist and the Rangers on Tuesday night. New Jersey took three one-goal leads and made the last one stick after Dainius Zubrus scored with 2:55 remaining. "We tied it up in the third, and we got unfortunate on all their three goals," Vigneault said. "Their goaltender made some big saves at key times." One shot that eluded Lundqvist was singled out by Vigneault -- Ryan Carters second of the game and season that gave the Devils a 2-1 lead with 46.1 seconds left in the second period. Carter beat speedy Rangers forward Carl Hagelin to Adam Larssons dump-in and cut in on Lundqvist. He sent a quick shot through the crease and inside the left post. When asked about Hagelins role in that goal, Vigneault seemingly shifted the focus onto Lundqvist. "Im not quite sure what happened there," Vigneault said. "It was an easy first man on the puck, but mind you its a routine save." Zubrus made it 3-2 when he put in a loose puck after his shot was blocked by defenceman Dan Girardi. That gave Brodeur a third straight win. "Any win at the Garden is a great win," New Devils owner Josh Harris said. Girardi had gotten the Rangers even at 2 when he scored his first of the season with 7:42 left. Girardi banked in a shot from the blue line off the skate of Devils defenceman Adam Larsson, who turned 21 Tuesday. "Just an overall gutsy effort, and our goalie was fantastic," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. "I think weve gotten nice starting goaltending for the last three weeks." Brodeur, who earlier this season conceded his starting job to newcomer Cory Schneider started and won for the third time in four games. His previous two outings resulted in shutouts. The 41-year-old Brodeur, who made 33 saves, also allowed a second-period goal to Marc Staal in earning his NHL-record 674th win. "I love to play against these guys, and Im sure they feel the same way," said Brodeur, who has beaten the Rangers 48 times. However, he wasnt ready to claim the No. 1 job back. "Ill leave it to the coaches to make those decisions," he said. "Ill never say boo about stuff like that. Karma goes a long way. I have learned that from the past. Ill never ask for anything here. Ill always be ready to play." Schneider shut out the Rangers in the previous meeting in New Jersey on Oct. 19. Lundqvist mmade 25 saves for New York, which went 0 for 5 on the power play.dddddddddddd. The Rangers (9-9) had won six of seven to get over .500 for the first time this season. He kept it a one-goal deficit with 7:45 left when he stopped former teammate Jaromir Jagr, who came in alone after leaving the penalty box. "We didnt give anything to them, and we fought all night," said Jagr, who earlier Tuesday told his teammates they would win 3-2. "We had a lot of chances to break it open, especially me. I should have scored on that breakaway, and it would have been 3-1, and game over." But that save wasnt enough for the Rangers. "We came out and did the things that we needed to do," Lundqvist said. "We came back into the game and gave us a chance to win. I had a good feeling, especially when we tied it up, but its over and its a tough one. "A lot of good things, but we needed to find a way to win there, and we didnt." Carter netted his first goal with another aggressive charge. He shoved a shot in close that appeared to hit the skate of backchecking forward J.T. Miller and Lundqvists stick before sneaking inside the left post at 6:37. "Thats the way it works sometimes," Carter said. "You get a few in on shots you might not think are going in. I had some clean shots, some dream shots, and he stopped them." The Rangers bounced right back off a rush by Mats Zuccarello, who curled behind the Devils net and backhanded a pass to Staal for a one-timer from above the left circle. The defencemans second of the season snapped Brodeurs shutout streak at 191 minutes, 21 seconds. Brodeur turned aside a hard drive by Derek Stepan less than 5 minutes in, and then stonewalled Zuccarello twice in the crease. Chris Kreider put the puck into the net, but after the whistle was blown. Brodeur thrust his glove into the face of the 5-foot-7 Zuccarello during a stoppage, and even made a save with his mask, mimicking Lundqvists style. "I wanted to match him up," Brodeur said. "I just saw it last second, and I just reacted, and it went off my head. It was a Lundqvist save, I guess." NOTES: Rangers LW Rick Nash (concussion) skated for the fourth straight day and was cleared to return to practice on Wednesday. He has missed 15 games. ... Zuccarello and defenceman Ryan McDonagh both extended point streaks to a career-best four games with assists. ... Devils LW Patrik Elias missed his sixth straight game due to upper body soreness. ...
