He bungled the last CBA by allowing long term contracts and an escalator.
He bungled expansion by not understanding the markets he was entering.
And he's bungled fostering any type of relationship with the PA.
Gary has got to go.
Actually I think Gary Bettman is a good and reasonable negotiator.
By what he says and how he comports himself he obviously takes into account the best points in other peoples side. Unfortunately, when you are used to getting your way, when somebody is finally saying no, that reasonable behaviour is seen as belligerence.
