NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has a simple explanation why the league is fighting to keep the bankrupt Phoenix Coyotes in Arizona.

The situation in Phoenix is "fixable," Bettman said on his weekly NHL Hour radio show on Sirius/XM satellite radio.

Canadian businessman Jim Balsillie has made a US$212.5-million offer to buy the team from current majority owner Jerry Moyes, contingent on the ability to move the team to Hamilton.
