It definitely sounds to me like he said it, but nobody that matters thinks he did, so that's that.
You need to keep in mind that there are like 10 or so mics around the rink so sounds are picked up from different parts of the rink. In the end, it wasn't him who said the slur or anything that sounded like it. The explanation was the voice that said "Rag It" or similar was actually from a Tampa player and not Rielly at all.
As for the Rag It...Noodles said on Overdrive they used Rag It all the time and you can clearly here the bench or someone yelling rag, rag, rag when the Tbay player was getting to the puck in the corner. So in the end, you can think he said whatever definitively, the NHL would argue  as would the referee and I think he would know seeing his was in direct line with Rielly. Let's be perfectly clear here, if he or anyone did say it, there would be serious repercussions.

I don't care if he said it or not.
