Ownership Quotes

 

Andrew Barroway – Majority Owner, Chairman & Governor of the Arizona Coyotes

 

“I am thrilled to be here and am thrilled to be an owner and would not have gone through this difficult process
in buying a team just to go flip it. I don't think people buy teams to make money. That's not the goal.

Anthony LeBlanc – President, CEO, Co-Owner & Alternate Governor of the Arizona Coyotes

 

“But we like to point to markets like San Jose and Dallas, even in the Carolinas, where hockey has really thrived.

"Did we lose money Year 1? Yes. Will we lose money in Year 2? Yes. But we budgeted for those losses, and we do feel this thing
will turn around. And when it does, that should obliterate discussions of the out clause.”

On players underperforming or flawed roster:
“From the perspective of ownership, I hate to say it, but it sucked. This was just a really bad year.
Maybe we were being a little bit Pollyanna when we started the season, but I think if you look back and

That's the way I look at this past season: It's like everything went wrong.”

FoxSports, Apr 14, 2015, Q & A: Coyotes' CEO Anthony LeBlanc weighs in on trying season

“"The business boost we would have received had we either moved up or stayed where we were at the second spot,
I'm not going to lie, we won't see the bump that I had hoped for in the short-term," LeBlanc said. "But I think in the long-term, we definitely will."”

Buffalo.’ To find out it was Edmonton? That stung. That stung.””

Avik Dey – Co-Owner of the Arizona Coyotes

 

““This team has been in the penalty box for the better part of five years, so we (IceArizona) were probably a bit naïve in terms of how
quickly things would turn around once stable ownership was in place,” he said. “We thought we could turn on a switch and
people would start swarming back, but the reality is you have to earn the market back.””

Glendale fiscal forecast grim

 

“(Glendale’s finance director Tom) Duensing’s forecast shows that the Coyotes deal will cost the city

an estimated $8.1 million next year, after revenue associated with the deal.

 

Councilman Ian Hugh, who voted against the July agreement, said the Coyotes deal

pushed the already-struggling city over the edge. There is no easy fix, he said.

 

“I don’t have the cure,” Hugh said. “But I can tell you what caused the disease.””
