Tuesday is the hard-and-fast deadline for the city of Glendale to agree on an arena deal, or the Coyotes could move.

And, it's possible the Phoenix hockey team could come to Seattle.

KeyArena has already set aside NHL dates for this fall. The league met with Seattle officials a few weeks ago.

"They made it clear if they were able to secure the Coyotes, they would play at KeyArena without any commitment by the city a new arena would be built." said Seattle City Council Member Tim Burgess.

What about the agreement to build a new arena in Seattle for hockey and basketball?

"An NBA team first, then a hockey team if one comes," said Burgess.

The Glendale City Council meets Tuesday night to decide on the future of the Coyotes in Arizona.
