If its unhealthy, lets ask why. The southern market and overexpansion coupled with the tv unable to bolster teams. Sounds like Bettman's reason to exist as commissioner. Yet he is regarded as a first ballot hall of famer here. Priceless.
You need the larger league to even have the opportunity to approach national penetration and the TV and marketing revenues that those can bring. The solution is greater revenue sharing. (Which apparently the sides have already agreed to.)
Bettman as a hall-of-famer? Oy. Definitely not. He's been a B-/C+ as a commissioner.
