According to the PHX Business Journal, Greg Jamison is $20 million short in his pursuit to buy the Coyotes.
The report says “The Coyotes deal is on tenuous ice but could still happen, according to multiple sources familiar with the team’s three-year ownership saga and uncertain future in the Phoenix market.
Jamison is courting new investors and partners to help him cobble together the money and financing needed to purchase the team from the National Hockey League.”
It also notes that Shane Doan did meet with Jamison late on Friday to hear the latest on where Jamison is in trying to buy the Coyotes.
8:29PM: Bruce Garrioch writes in the Ottawa Sun, via Spectors Hockey, that the Penguins are prepared to offer Doan a four-year deal worth $24 million.
French TV station TVA Sports reports that Doan didn’t hear from Jamison on Friday and that his agent said “it doesn’t look good.”
