With the Arizona Coyotes season coming to a close, it has been confirmed that they will move to Utah next season, and now their players are opening up about Coyotes ownership and the move.

The entire drama coming to a boiling point for the Arizona Coyotes and the NHL is truly an unprofessional blight on the league. Starting with the treatment of the players in Arizona, how they played in a College Hockey arena and had the worst plane in the league. The sudden transition to the move to Utah shows just how bad the NHL thought it was, but is also a mark on them as well for doing things so quickly with poor communication.
Now, the players have opened up about the upcoming move, as reported by insider Frank Seravalli. While fans might be upset the team is leaving, it appears some players are far from it.
"I talked to one player over the weekend who said, 'Who in their right mind is sad to leave? We've got the worst plane, we've got the worst hotels, the worst food, our staff has the worst budget. We can't get anything done... we feel like we're playing in a league other than the NHL. How do we find a way to just have different vibes, different energy?"

Without saying too much, I don't blame Coyotes players for wanting out of the desert. While they did have a supportive fan base in Mullet Arena, it is hard to compete for the ultimate goal of a Stanley Cup when you don't have the resources to even give your players the food they like.
Clearly, players are looking for a new start in Utah.
