Are you sure about that? Bettman is obsessed with both those things and is apparently willing to tear down the history and credibilty of the league to make it more "appealing" to a wider fan base that quite frankly he'll never be able to reach.

Just wait until we have bigger nets, blue ice, 4-on-4, no fighting (hell maybe no checking, too violent), shootouts, metallic jerseys plastered with ads, and tell me again that you don't give a "fig" about the national standing of the sport.
