English: NHL Commisioner Gary Bettman in 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I am sure that my buddy Redwing77 will be happy to see than one of the players from his favorite team called Gary Bettman an idiot. Personally I agree with White, when I see Bettman's face it reminds of all of the bad things that have happened to the NHL.  Lets think about this for a minute. Bettman is the NHL commissioner that under his reign of terror has had three labor disagreements that have led to work stoppages. Also, Bettman is threatening to cancel his second season in eight years. Marvelous!!! Let's not forget the fiasco in the desert. The Detroit News — Ian White has been one of the more vocal and frustrated players during this NHL lockout. Commissioner Gary Bettman has caught most of White's verbal frustration the past two months, the length of this lockout thus far. After learning of Bettman's suggestion for a two-week moratorium in negotiations, White called Bettman "an idiot. "I personally think he's an idiot," said White Friday after a group of locked out Red Wings finished a workout. "Since he's come in, he's done nothing but damaged the game. It will be interesting to see how long this plays out. Will we see more players speak out against the NHL Commissioner?  One also has to wonder if there are NHL owners that agree with White but aren't allowed to speak up at the current time.
