Bettman on WFAN yesterday

Russo interviewed Bettman on the FAN last night. Bettman spoke out of both sides of his mouth by disputing the problem the NHL currently has is at least in part due to bad management by saying that revenues have tripled over the past 10 years. He then goes on to say that the salaries have quadrupled over the same timeframe but refuses to place any blame on the management.... He also indicated that the league is looking to lower the percentage of the revenue that is paid in salaries(supposedly 75%) to around 53%. The overall impression I got is that we are in for a long wait for a season....
