None of this is what Bettman wants. That is what rankles me when I hear fans bring up the NBA, likening what the NBA has to what Bettman is proposing. Or worse yet, when Bettman himself mentions the NBA and it's cap. Fans may be ignorant and not recognize the difference, but NHL officials are just misrepresenting the truth.
