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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
