Those Bettman/Daly quotes are from prior to Game 1 but hadn't realized they were so definitive. We're finally at do or die time for Phoenix.
Bettman: "It's up to the City of Glendale to make the decision... Ultimately, whether or not this team stays at this point, is their call."
Bettman on Glendale: "I worry about what's going to happen to the arena if the team isn't there. I think it's likely to get boarded up."
Daly: "We have done everything humanly possible to make this franchise work in this market. Now we're going to find out whether that works."
Bettman on Coyotes options: "We're not going to... say, ‘we'd rather be here than there.’ We're going to try to preserve what's in place."
Good retirement gig here... RT @thejeffbrooke

Breaking News! Red Wings sign Drew Miller 1.35/year for 3 years!
Bobby Orr on how NHL hockey has changed on the Team 1040 "I think there's a lot of unnecessary checking." Obviously never played the game.
NHL revenues were never projected to be 48/82 for this partial season - a ton of HRR sources weren't cut that drastically. I'd bet on ~70%.
Bettman saying NHL made more than 58% of full season revenue is disingenuous way to look at it. With full postseason, lot of HRR untouched.
Impressive how well he's played with it. RT @NHLonNBCSports

Malkin's new contract sets the bar under this CBA for star player deals bit.ly/11L2y6F
Lightning have signed forward Reto Suri to a one-year contract, two-way contract.
, why did you kill my TweetDeck? Thx bye.
Updated story on Malkin's new contract setting the new bar for star player deals: bit.ly/11L2y6F
There's the effect of term limits and the variance rule right there - not much creativity in these huge contracts anymore. Get what you get.
Confirmed that there's zero front or backloading to Malkin's deal. Pays $9.5-million every year, with some signing bonuses in later years.
Fact is Leafs almost beat Bruins not playing goons and Hawks/Bruins have skilled 4th lines. Even Thornton can play. Pretty straight forward
Last night's Game 1 averages nearly 6.4 million viewers in U.S., making it the most-watched Game 1 of the finals in 16 years.
The Orr extension is basically exactly what @jonasTSN1050
predicted on the podcast last month. Could see it coming.

Leafs have signed Colton Orr to a two-year deal. Expect it to be in range of his previous contract: $1-million annually.
NHL revenues will only have to rise to $3.4-billion next season for cap to go up the following season. Big jump not coming till 2015-16.
