I'm not saying owners are evil, but for those who think that, think of the context, Bettman broke down the NHLPA and was also more professional than any of the any previous leaders. Hmm, seems like people are mad he's too good at what he does. Bettman is a very smart man, denying that is just people being mad. Is he good for the game? that's another discussion, revenues grew under his tenure, owners like him and players hate him. I think he's doing the job just fine.
now that's a spin job... we all know the owners had no intention of what transpired happening... they did not forsee the rise in the canadian dollar (yet they are astute/savvy businessmen ?)
