Allís quiet on the never-ending Phoenix Coyotes ownership front as the National Hockey Leagueís owners and players try to hash a new labor deal and avoid a lockout and lost games.

But officials supportive and close to Greg Jamisonís year-long bid to buy the Coyotes and keep the team in Glendale say the collective bargaining talks and a possible lockout are not having a detrimental effect on the sale.

Those sources say Jamison has brought together the investor money to buy the team. But there still is no time line on when exactly a deal may close, and others continue to question why a sale hasnít been finalized if they money is there.


All the rest is right here
