The company line & talking points with the public, the media & I would think the NHLPA has been "we continue to work towards finalising a sale in Glendale" and any talk of relocation & specific markets dismissed beyond the aforementioned platitudes. Indeed, the relationship between the league & the PA, between Bettman & Fehr doesnt strike me as being very cordial, that Gary would even feel it was any of the NHLPA's business where the Coyotes wind up, where any teams located. Wasnt even a topic the NHL was willing to discuss during the CBA negotiations.
I certainly agree Bettman did not tell him what was to happen like you posted, in a definitive status.
But, something happened that resolved the realignement thing. Dont know what happened. My point is more there are two realignments ready. We know one.
Its only an impression. Yep, I'm not in the secret...
Ya know! If you read everything posted here, yall find out I got 10% chances of being right ;-) But I am fighter ;-)
