I agree with the above. I think that if Jamison and Bettman ask for more time, it will be either to push the onus back onto the COG to kill the deal, or perhaps to continue a facade for a while longer to avoid higher operation losses on the Coyotes this year. If Jamison hasn't been able to secure investors and then crack a deal with Bettman under this deadline, then he won't be able to do it in the next few months. If the deal isn't finalized this week, I doubt that it will ever be.
