I'm not sure about that. Back during the court proceedings, Daly had this to say:

"By acquiring the team at this time the NHL will be able to salvage the team's 2009-10 season and can establish a more constructive timetable in which to solicit acceptable offers from qualified parties, including, if a potential buyer wishing to keep the team in Glendale cannot be found, conducting an organized process to relocate the franchise in another territory," he wrote.
Then this:

"We want to sit down with the City of Glendale and see if we can come up with a 'win-win' for the franchise. We haven't been involved in those types of discussions to this point. But if we (or any of the other local bidders) aren't successful in doing that, we are prepared to consider offers that would entail relocation of the franchise."
