Instead AV has said it's an internal thing and he'll leave it at that. And something along the lines of this is what he just decided when he flew back. Doesn't sound like he's sticking to the pre-determined schedule.
The 'internal' decision does seem a bit peculiar, yet I wouldn't rule out this being pre-determined. The case could be made that Roberto needs to continue to show he is mid season form to other GM's to alleviate concerns as to his usual slow starts, but I believe Cory was always pre-determined to play the Blackhawks game for obvious reasons.
