Not that surprising. The pro-contraction comments were heard over the summer. Several players said that the cost could be contraction and that contraction of a few teams is a case of the good of the many outweighing the good of the few. The players are willing to see teams fold. Bettman dares not. That would be a HUGE source of embarassment to him. After all, it is pretty well documented that he led the expansion charge into markets that the NHL clearly did not belong in.
Players are willing to contract. Bettman is not.
