NO GUARANTEE: NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly on Monday said that there is "basically no guarantee for either the short- or long-term future of the Coyotes." He said that he "thinks it’s 'better than 50-50' that the Coyotes will be playing in Phoenix next season." However, Daly said, "It’s not set in stone.” THE HOCKEY NEWS' Ken Campbell noted Daly also "acknowledged the league is aware of the alternatives it has at its disposal and realizes it may have to consider them at some point in the near future." Daly: “I think you get to a point. ... Look, we’ve tried really hard to keep this franchise here and there is a reason we do that, because we think this club could be successful given the right circumstances. So far we haven’t been successful in finding a buyer and at some point you have to make tough decisions. Are we getting to that point? If this doesn’t play out the way we’d like it to play out, maybe" (THEHOCKEYNEWS.com, 4/30).
