What part of "circulated on March 25th" is not sinking in?

That Buffalo "confirmed they got a memo" is likely just the team playing nice with the league to let them save face.
Except that they repeatedly denied knowledge of the rule and accused Bettman of covering up a mistake... until later in the summer when they very quietly acknowledged that they had in fact received it on March 25th and refused to comment further.

Doesn't sound like the league was the one trying to save face.
