Prospective Coyotes owner Greg Jamison, like the rest of the Coyotes fans is ready to drop the puck and get the sale of the NHL owned team done as soon as possible. Given that the lease agreement that was proposed gets voted in his favor.
Having spoken to Arizona Republic’s Sonu Munshi after the Glendale Workshop last night, Jamison reportedly said that he and his investors are ready to move forward with the sale as quickly as possible once the vote is completed.
Just spoke with Jamison: we fully intend to buy the team but we are waiting for the vote. Then we’ll move as quickly as we possibly can.

Greg Jamison, who has been the only interested party to get this far in negotiations with both the league and the city will see his lease agreement up for official vote come November 27 after a meeting in Glendale Tuesday night laid the groundwork for the vote itself. The lease agreement vote was the cornerstone of Tuesday’s Glendale workshop.
If a sale is not completed it is assumed that the team will be heading to either Seattle, Kansas City or Quebec. But many close to the situation are hopeful of the sale completion.
As pointed out in other articles, Jamison has yet to reveal his investors but is not required to do so. Any worry about money should be pushed aside as both the NHL and Glendale has done due-dilligence with Greg Jamison and his group of investors.
While Jamison has done all he can from his end, the rest lays on Glendale and their council. The vote is set to take place on November 27.
