The failed Tempe vote leaves the Arizona Coyotes homeless once again. As ownership scrambles to find a solution, there are more questions than answers. One of those is this: how does the Tempe vote impact the future of the Coyotes’ core? In his column, Elliotte Friedman wrote, “Clayton Keller gave the Arizona Coyotes a month or so to provide him with direction about the future.” Logan Cooley already told PHNX sports that the arena vote was a factor in his decision to return to Minnesota, and Keller’s agent Scott Bartlett told PHNX that he wants clarity on the Coyotes’ future soon. Can other core players like Keller, Lawson Crouse and Nick Schmaltz potentially want out with no long-term solution in place?

Craig and Leah discuss the impact of the vote on the core, whether or not there’s a timeline and how a number of scenarios could play out. Plus, both NHL Conference Finals are on the verge of sweeps. The crew also goes around the NHL, from playoffs to vacant GM positions, on this episode of the PHNX Coyotes Podcast!
