Should the Coyotes Stay or Go?
It looks like the Phoenix Coyotes are here to stay (for at least five more years, anyway) after the Glendale City Council approved an arena-management deal with the team's buyers.
Although that was a huge deal, there's still a significant rift between people who want them to stay, and people who want them to go.
