This is a commissioner who fought like hell to create a hard cap, and after it finally got approved, was too dense to remember to include a rule that contracts couldn't last longer than five or six years (like what the NBA does)
That is so true. I think a case could be made that the players accepting a cap took Bettman by surprise and he made the deal quickly because he was too happy.
