Statement from NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly
National Hockey League Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly today issued the following statement concerning the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Oct. 24.

NEW YORK -- National Hockey League Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly today issued the following statement concerning the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Oct. 24:

"We were extremely disappointed to have to make today's announcement. The game deserves better, the fans deserve better and the people who derive income from their connection to the NHL deserve better.

"We remain committed to doing everything in our power to forge an agreement that is fair to the players, fair to the teams and good for our fans.

"This is not about 'winning' or 'losing' a negotiation. This is about finding a solution that preserves the long-term health and stability of the League and the game.

"We are committed to getting this done."

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
