Arizona Coyotes

Chandler and Phoenix SportsThe Arizona Coyotes are based in Glendale outside of Phoenix Arizona. The main owner is a gentleman named Andrew Barroway and they used to play in downtown Phoenix before they relocated to Glendale where they often play in The Gila River Arena. The coyotes were originally from Canada called the Winnipeg Jets between roughly the 1970s through the 1990s. It’s amazing that they now are in the middle of the desert when they used to be in the middle of the ice. Canada is not exactly a warm country when it comes to weather, please.

Sometimes there are hockey games throughout the Phoenix suburbs such as Chandler and Gilbert and even Mesa. Hockey fans can then reduce the travel time to see a game and hopefully experience a wonderful time watching those Fierce competitors on the ice. Some of their players were actually Hall of Famers. Mike Gartner was inducted in 2001 having played between 1996 and 1998. Brett Hall was inducted in 2009. Currently, they are doing pretty well was some serious scoring players. Shane Doan has accumulated 972 points throughout his career with points per game ratio of 0.63. Bobby Hull is a Powerhouse with a points per game ratio of 1.51 but the highest currently is Ulf Nilsson with a games per point ratio of 1.61.

The teams history has not always been financially sound. As a matter of fact in 2009 there was a bankruptcy and they attempted and tried their best to try to sell the team. It became known in 2008 that the coyotes were not making much money and we’re actually losing money. They were really suffering heavy losses and the National Hockey League was actually paying their bills which obviously couldn’t continue long-term.

In 2013 the Glendale City Council approved a very nice lease agreement with Renaissance Sports which was going to last 15 years. Renaissance Sports would also purchase the team from the National Hockey League for 225 million dollars by the Year 2013. This basically saved the coyotes. Because how long could the NHL continue to cover their losses?

So in 2014 on January 29th the group that now owns them change the name to Arizona Coyotes to begin with the 2014-2015 hockey season. This is great because I live in Phoenix so calling the Arizona Coyotes team spirit and support to the whole state.

After the 24 team 2015 season, they had the second-worst record in the National Hockey League. So the team replaced the general manager Maloney with a new general manager John Chayka and he was at that time the NHL’s youngest general manager. He was promoted to his position within the coyote’s staff. Another notable feature and unique event was at the Arizona Coyotes hired the first full-time female skating coach in the history of the National Hockey League.

Hockey Near Chandler?

Almost in 2016 was that the coyotes tried to build a new Arena or stadium in Tempe. This, however, did not happen because ASU pulled out of the deal and so they lost a major source of funding much to the Chagrin of Chandler and Tempe residence. The original investor Barroway bought the rest of the ownership of the Coyotes from the group and is now the only owner.

Hopefully the future of the Coyotes is bright and we hope that they may find a way to build a stadium more south, perhaps in Chandler so more sports fans in the south east valley of Phoenix don’t have so far to travel.

Peaceful Sports Fans

Can you imagine living in a world where everybody involved in any kind of sport completely respected one another and cared for each other. People would say that that is some type of a dream and it will never happen. Yet, did you know that there are ancient prophecies describing what the conditions on Earth will be like in the not-too-distant future. These conditions are what all healthy and normal people would like for themselves, their friends and their family. It only makes sense since the author of these prophecies is also the creator of the heavens and the Earth.

Our good friends who provide a great Scottsdale Limo Service, www.luxelimosaz.com tell us of how many times they take sports fans to games in Phoenix AZ. They tell of how upset the fans are at the outcome of the game and some are in violent moods. They say they are sometimes afraid the clients will do some damage to their limos. They would really appreciate peaceful fans!

All too often in the world we currently live in sports fans at all types of sporting events have been fighting with one another because their team either won or lost. We also see it in the National Hockey League, where there is an abundance of fighting going on on the ice during the game. It seems fans may base their decision on who they like best based upon how well they can fight on the ice rink.  What kind of a message does this send to our children?  Is this a healthy way to live peacefully in our world?  It seems anybody with an honest heart would say that violence is not healthy and not good. Yet just as in the ancient Roman days at the Coliseum large crowds gather together today to watch men battle it out in some kind of a match or game. Yes, in these days and times these matches are not to the death like they were with the Gladiators of ancient Rome but they are still being oftentimes filled with violence and conflict.stadium

Look at the modern sport of boxing.  Used to be that the fighters wore heavily padded boxing gloves. Today with the MMA that padding has been removed and almost anything goes during the fight. The sport of boxing has gotten much more violent. It is more bloody and graphic and this influences peoples behavior for the worse.

And people flock to watch these battles. Not only do people visit and pay money the see live matches and games such as hockey, soccer etc but our children are being taught how to be violent through the many and varied video games that promote killing, fighting and Carnage. It does not stop there with those negative things but they also contain much in the way of pornography and dishonesty in the form of stealing, lying and cheating. Clearly. this is not healthy for society but these activities are flourishing.

When will it stop? Will it ever stop? We will take a look at that in upcoming articles. They will be based on ancient prophecies we are seeing fulfilled in our times. They are positive and full of hope for people who truly want a peaceful and kind world.
