Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Craig Morgan of FoxSports Arizona,
While sources maintain that the NHL is pressuring Renaissance Sports and Entertainment to strike a deal this week (at least in principle) with the City of Glendale on a lease agreement for Jobing.com Arena, Glendale councilmember Gary Sherwood received mitigating information over the weekend.
Sherwood spoke to NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly on Sunday, and Daly assured him that there is “no deadline, per se.” Daly told Sherwood that if the city and RSE appear to be headed toward an agreement, the NHL would be amenable to the Glendale City Council voting on it in July rather than on June 25, when the council next convenes.
That somewhat contradicts what sources have said the league is telling RSE. Under that scenario, the city and RSE -- the ownership group of George Gosbee, Anthony LeBlanc, Daryl Jones and Avik Dey -- would need to have a deal ready by June 17 so that it could be presented at the Glendale City Council Executive Session on June 18 and then voted on at the council meeting one week later.
