GM Bill Zito on the SiriusXM NHL Power Play program stated previously today that both are on schedule.

“The intel I’m getting back is that they’re on time,” Zito stated. “It’ll be a month or two. Is it four (months)? Probably not. Is it one (month)? Probably not. That’s as well as I could get, but every time I check in, I’m told (they’re) on schedule).”
