Amazing, but Bettman isn't the problem.
I think until the nhl startes to shed it's dead weight teams by moving them to hockey rich areas or contraction the situation will not improve.
Franchises will continue to struggle & be proped up by the NHL, some owners will spend wildly, others will be the Islanders, fan bases feel alienated & we do the dance again in 3 to 5 years.
Not a smart business model.
The one thing that stuck out to me in this article is that Fehr is in control. He knows exactly where he want's to steer negotiations. He is playing a PR game & is making Bettman look pretty bad right noe. Of course all that can change. But it's a stark diffrence than 6 years ago when the hea dof the PA looked like a deer in the headlights of the owners & Bettmans PA puppet.
