In another move aimed at endearing Jim Balsilie to Gary Bettman, it appears the Make It Seven campaign is about to flood the NHL commissioner's inbox with email from Canadian hockey fans in the near future.
Here's a look at the form letter they've put together over at makeitseven.ca:
Dear Mr. Bettman:
It's a simple question being asked by Canadian hockey fans like me. The nation that has the deepest roots and passion for the game of hockey, wants to know why can't we bring a seventh Canadian NHL hockey team to southern Ontario?
The NHL has already approved Mr. Balsillie as an NHL owner and in his ruling yesterday Judge Redfield T. Baum recognized that he is an approved NHL owner.
It is clear that Hamilton remains the best location for the Coyotes versus letting it wither in the desert. So why not?
In his ruling Judge Baum also encouraged the NHL and Jim Balsillie to sit down together in mediation to determine what a fair and reasonable relocation fee would be. Mr. Balsillie has said he's willing to participate in mediation. So why not?
We love this game and we know you do too. It's time for discussion. It's time to Make It Seven.
Sincerely a dedicated Canadian hockey fan.
More of the same, really.
