If something goes bad with the NHL, Gary Bettman gets all the blame. If something goes right with the NHL, he gets none of the credit.

As for the whole ESPN/OLN thing; does anyone really think that decision was solely made by Bettman? The owners probably wanted the OLN deal because it was more money. The extra revenue also resulted in a higher cap initially, which means the players got paid more because of the deal.
