from Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic,
Divorces don’t happen overnight. Most times, you can hear them coming.
Loose comments? A chilly change in tone? If you’re a Coyotes fan, you were jolted by both before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Commissioner Gary Bettman said time was running short on the city of Glendale. He said “stuff’s gonna happen” in the next two weeks. He even tossed out the visual of a boarded-up Jobing.com Arena.
Not what you expect from a life partner.
Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly acknowledged for the first time that the Coyotes might not be playing in Arizona next season. He said the puck was in Glendale’s end, assuming all city-council members actually would catch the metaphor.
It sounded a lot better when we were on the 1-yard line.
