Bettman Is The Problem

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette, Let’s face the truth, folks: Gary Bettman has become hockey’s worst enemy. Bettman is now the author of three lockouts and the disastrous expansion into the Sun Belt, egomaniac, a man who would rather destroy the National Hockey League than form a workable partnership with the players. Under his watch, the NHL has already lost...

It’s High Time for Bettman to Admit Phoenix Is A Mistake

As Glendale, Arizona City Council convenes to vote on a restructured lease agreement between potential buyer Greg Jamison and the municipality, the future of the Coyotes in the Copper State is very much up in the air and it’s about time that Gary Bettman admits that hockey in Phoenix just won’t work out.  But why won’t Bettman let [...]

Dear NHL Commish….

From: Paul Schneider     An average hockey fan Evanston, IL.     To: Gary Bettman, Commissioner, NHL 1185 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10036     Dear Mr. Bettman,   I started writing this letter about a year ago to complement you on your stellar record as the league’s first commissioner. During your administration, [...]

Hump Day links... Just give me my hockey now!

English: NHL Commisioner Gary Bettman in 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Well there are quite a few news stores of note this morning in the college and professional hockey world. The NHL Labor mess continues on and is proving to be an absolute gong show and it appears that there is little evidence that a solution is forth coming. Like my friend Chris Wassel said...

Easy Boys

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, So far in this lockout, the owners have been placed under a gag order by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. As a result, there have been very few cracks in their ranks and, regardless of whether or not you side with Bettman and the owners, they have basically been able to remain consistently on message. The members of the NHL Players...

What Is Burke’s Plan?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, Brian Burke has made some recent appearances alongside Gary Bettman and Bill Daly on the NHL side of the labour negotiations, which raises some fascinating questions. Is Burke representing himself, his personal views, or the views of the ownership of the Toronto Maple Leafs? Burke is a known hardliner on the NHL’s side, a hawk on...

Evening Line

The reason there’s no agreement yet is that Gary Bettman has made promises he can’t keep. And if he doesn’t keep them and loses half an NHL season — or more — in the process, he will be out of a job that pays him $8 million a year. That’s why there’s been little negotiation from the NHL. That’s why there’s no hockey. And that’s why there won’t be hockey...

Morning Line

“If I was a company being courted by the NHL today, or if I was advising a company being courted, I would be concerned.” The current commissioner [Gary Bettman, commissioner since 1993] has three work stoppages under his belt.” -Michael Neuman, managing partner for Scout Sports and Entertainment.  More from Terry Lefton and Christopher Botta of SportsBusiness Journal.

NHL players vote in step toward dissolving union

TORONTO -- NHL players are a step closer to dissolving their union. NHL Players' Association members voted this week to give the union's executive board the power to file a "disclaimer of interest" until Jan. 2, The Canadian Press said Friday. The news agency, citing an unidentified source, said the vote drew more than the two-thirds of the required support. The...

NHL Asked NBC To Not Broadcast Operation Hat Trick

Actions often speak louder than words. As the NHL and the players are stuck in a PR battle, it's easy for each side to spin things however they want them to appear. Actions, though, speak for themselves. Some players made the best of the situation and helped to organize a charity game in Atlantic City, a trip that was not so convenient for many of the attendees (Henrik Lundqvist...

Travis Yost: Erik Karlsson? Still Erik Karlsson

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Erik Karlsson's one of the most electric blue line talents in the National Hockey League. So electric, in fact, Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr agreed early on to ensure that the entire world -- not just North America -- could watch the kid play. Sigh. Karlsson's been skating with Jokerit of SM-liiga in Finland during the NHL...
