Posted by Austin Kent Categories: Boston Bruins, Rumors

Fenway Winter ClassicThough nothing is official just yet, Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs is convinced that the third installment of the annual NHL Winter Classic will be held at Boston’s Fenway Park.

“Everything I’ve seen acts like, looks like, smells like it’s going to be in Boston,” Jacobs said in an Associated Press interview. “I don’t know of anybody else that’s gone through all of the search and process” to prepare for the game.

An official announcement is not expected until July. No word has been given as to a possible opponenet for the Bruins who finished last season with their highest win total since winning the Stanley Cup in 1972.

Previously the outdoor game has been held in Buffalo and Chicago at Ralph Wilson Stadium and Wrigley Field respectively.

Jerry Moyes, Phoenix Coyotes face bankruptcy hearing next week

Phoenix Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes’ relocation fiasco took another turn Wednesday when the NHL filed motions in an Arizona bankruptcy court. The hearing, between the league and the franchise, will take place Tuesday, May 19 to determine whether or not the franchise is to be considered legally bankrupt.

On one side you have Moyes and the Coyotes. From Moyes’ perspective, the Phoenix Coyotes are a losing investment with which he wants no part. If bankrupt, Moyes can then part with the team with less complication because they will not need to undergo the traditional owner application process. The noted offer of $212.5 million is Research in Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie’s attempt to take the struggling franchise off Moyes’ hands. It is, however, conditional on the franchise moving to southern Ontario.

The NHL on the other hand contests that since Moyes received financial support from the league last season (which according to the Arizona Republic he did, in order to pay stadium rent), that he no longer holds the right to put the team into bankruptcy.
