Even NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
His suggestion? Kansas City, of course.
Mahomes tweeted: "KC coyotes has a nice ring to it! @NHL what y’all think? @tmobilecenter"

Kansas City has been speculated as a potential home to an NHL franchise for some time, and Mahomes wasn't the only person on social media to speculate about the Arizona Coyotes potentially moving there.
Social media reacted very strongly to Patrick Mahomes' Arizona Coyotes relocation suggestion:

Seems like someone is ready to buy part of another franchise.

We don’t deserve Patrick Mahomes

Soooo…. KC would be a terrible market for a hockey team. Majority of Missouri are Blues fans or even Blackhawk fans. The area isn’t big enough to support a third team like that. No reason to divide fanbases

I always knew I didn't like you.

I am a hockey fan and I really want to believe that KC can support an NHL team long term but have little faith. The Mavericks are perfect for KC and I can live with that. The NBA has a better chance long term imo.

Love the Coyotes. I want them to stay. I know how important it is they stay for the youth and the entire game of hockey in AZ and the jobs etc.
Patrick Mahomes was just repping his city. It was nothing personal to AZ. Roles reversed AZ fans would praise Booker for doing the same
