Blown realignment that the Jackets supported, terrible on ice product with seemingly no end or feasible plan in sight etc... Connecting the dots, it wasn't hard to see why this was an easy thing for Bettman (who's been the proponent of the the last couple of rounds of expansion) to step into.

I understand the league is touting the 07 draft as a the main reason this was given, but with the public statement of support Bettman gave Priest and Howson after he complimented the fanbase for the passion of the rally (he said something like (paraphrasing) "No one is more upset by the situation on the ice more than Mike and Scott"), it certainly looks like the league is trying to insert itself into the middle of the situation....

We'll see... Personally, if the team is playing like garbage again next season with no clear cut candidates for the ASG, I won't be stuffing the ballot box for any CBJ players, regardless of where the game is....
