During his state of the union prior to the Stanley Cup final, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman explained that the situation with the Phoenix Coyotes was not about personal issues and was instead about following the rules as put forward by the National Hockey League.

"From my standpoint, it's not personal," said Bettman on Saturday. "It's about league rules and it's about doing the right thing in terms of the stability of this game and this league."
