After the nuclear holocaust comes all that will be left will be cockroaches and the Arizona Coyotes.
The NHL team that somehow, someway manages to find a way to survive, despite the fact that they consistently lose millions of dollars and are consistently at the bottom of the standings. Like a cockroach, they just... keep... surviving.
And this upcoming season, and for the foreseeable future, the team will be playing out of a literal minor-league facility when they share the newly minted Multi-Purpose Arena with Arizona State. The 3,500 capacity arena was built for ASU's hockey team, but after the Coyotes got kicked out of their own NHL building in Glendale, they somehow managed to convince the league to allow it to play on a literal college campus. Think this would happen to a more norther small market team like the Winnipeg Jets or Ottawa Senators? Not a chance, but I digress.
In any case, the Coyotes revealed just what things will look like at Multi-Purpose Arena this upcoming season and I kid you not when I say that I've been to Junior A arenas in Canada that were more impressive. I mean... look at some of these shots:
Hilarious... there's literally no upper bowl. It's just a dozen or so rows in the lower bowl and then some sub-standard suites...
Again, I've watched some junior games in facilities that were much bigger and better than this. Frankly, the NHL should be embarrassed. Imagine you're projected 2023 #1 overall pick Connor Bedard and you go from playing in front of packed WHL buildings every night to this joke of a major league arena... Yeesh.
