Assessing potential arena sites for the Arizona Coyotes in the Valley

Tempe citizens’ decision to reject the Arizona Coyotes’ proposed arena and entertainment district has left the team scrambling to find a long-term solution. While pundits around North America are calling for relocation, finding a permanent home elsewhere in the Valley seems to be the priority. So where can the Yotes call home?
