Bettman not talking about bidding for Phoenix



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Commissioner Gary Bettman says the NHL continues talking with prospective buyers for the league-owned Phoenix Coyotes with no timeline for selling the team.

Bettman said Wednesday night the league will do something if officials reach a point where they believe a solution cannot be reached. But Bettman says they hope to reach a solution so that timing becomes irrelevant.

He also says it isn’t constructive to talk specifics of who might be doing what.

The commissioner said in January three groups showed serious interest in the Coyotes.

The Republic newspaper reported Wednesday at least one deal from a prospective owner should be public by the end of April. A group headed by former San Jose Sharks chief executive officer Greg Jamison and a second have been talking to Glendale officials.
