While I don't like Bettman either, I've never felt the place to do this stuff is at the cup presentation. It's just not very classy. I'm not sure where the proper place is, but it's not in the cup finals.

I also think the fact the cup was awarded on home ice played into a better result. I think this was the first time since 2007 when the Ducks (spit) won it that the cup was presented to the home team. I'd imagine watching someone else win the cup in your rink would sting and likely cause you to want to boo a lot more.
