Gary Bettman at his creepiest in preseason presser

This was the imagery that NBC was able to capture of Gary Bettman during a press conference regarding the potential expansion into Quebec or Las Vegas. This is a look that has many layers. Look at those soulless eyes. That’s what I’m drawn to. This isn’t a real smile. He knows there is bad news for someone there. He’s putting on a good face for the crowd, but he knows he...

Expansion continues to be a hot topic in the NHL and Gary Bettman was recently asked about the possibility of a new team joining the Eastern Conference. Based on the current structure of the league (14 teams in the West and 16 in the East), the obvious solution is to place two teams in the West to balance things out.
