think about it. gary bettman gets paid to be the leader of a multi billion dollar corporation. thats not an easy task to do, no matter your feelings towards him.
i am so sick of seeing these selfish whiney players on twitter, especially Brad Richards and Hank tweeting their feelings on this.
Last time I checked, Brad Richards made $22 million in a calendar year for playing a game. yes thats right, a game. not leading a multi billion dollar corporation.
the players just look so bad retweeting and tweeting about bettmans salary, they need to realize that they play a friggen game and are way overpaid at that.
I have trouble feeling bad for the owners when they are the ones offering players these ridiculous salaries. If you think that they are making to much, don't offer them the salary in the 1st place.
If your team is not making money, odds are its not because of a player like Richards, more likely you as an owner have put together an incompetent corporate team to run the organization.
