And if the Coyotes saga has proven anything, it's that the NHL and Gary Bettman are not going to be backed into a corner and be forced by a third party to do something they don't want to do. They'll make the call to relocate the Coyotes to Seattle or Quebec City (or somewhere else) when they're good and ready.
