The Arizona Coyotes are used to having an uncertain future. Unlike the four years of waiting for a new owner to step forward, the team has gone on the offensive in the latest twist to this ongoing saga. The Coyotes on Thursday began mapping out their response to the Glendale City Council’s decision to dissolve an arena lease agreement. It will include a variety of legal maneuvers, but no immediate plans to relocate the team. The Coyotes signed a 15-year, $225 million lease agreement for then-Jobing.com Arena with the city of Glendale in 2013, just a few months after IceArizona bought the team from the NHL. – AP
