Welcome to the Cheap Seats

Just when you thought the proceedings in Phoenix couldn't get any more petty. Now Gary and the happy henchmen are trying to drive the final nail in the coffin and have the players suffer too.

The Wall Street journal is reporting that the NHL is asking Judge Baum to require that the Phoenix Coyotes fly US Airways charters for all away games in the upcoming season.

The NHL does not believe that the team should use the same service as last year, as it happens to belong to Mr. Moyes and includes 68 first class seats and other amenities...

Unlike the Moyes jet, the US Airways planes are standard passenger jets and the majority of the seats are standard leg room.

So I guess the boys will have to decide how to divvy up the first class seats. Do they do it on a rotation? By height? I imagine Kurt Sauer at 6' 4" might have a bit of an issue getting his frame in a standard seat. Maybe they do first class as an incentive, get a shutout, goal or an assist, win a fight and move to the front of the plane.

As if the Phoenix players didn't have enough to worry about before.

It's not even Christmas yet and already Bettman has pulled a "Grinch." Hey Gary, why not make them ride a bus to all games in LA, San Jose, Edmonton, Vancouver and Edmonton too, that will save some more cash.

We understand though, the franchise was never in trouble. That's what you said right?
