The point is they blast Bettman, yet every single player in the NHLPA has benefitted from his tenure from expansion to revenues to salary escalation. The game has grown big time under his watch. The players have the right to say the 'league' or the 'owners' in general, but my lord, A LOT of employees would be more than happy to have GB leading the way with the have had salary 'increases' from their company.
