Bettman said to Aubut:"get the Hell out of there" when he heard the deal that Parizeau and the provincial goverment were offering. Wich was not so bad. Parizeau was offering the owners of the Nords for the goverment to buy a part of the team. And then managing it his way without thinking about getting a new arena right away. Parizeau is a financial wizard and in his mind he thought he could make the team successful and financialy viable for a while with the same arena. Because most people felt that part-Nords owner Marcel Aubut was a charlatan and he and Bettman were were making out things worst than they were. So Parizeau was like:"let me handle it, i'll make it work". And who knows, maybe he was right.
