Bettman has grown the sport of hockey, he has a vested interest in the success of the game as a whole. His position is to ensure the survivability of the smaller market teams so the league grows as a whole. He has made it a point to try to grow the sport in non traditional areas which takes a long time to do and yields little to no immediate results but pays off big down the road. I don't doubt that Gary Bettman is doing what he feels is best for the NHL.

Ask yourself whether Donald Fehr is acting in the best interest of the sport? Just see the damage he did with Baseball, it's clear he does not give one crap about the sports that the players he leads play. It sickens me when fans take up on his side like he's looking out for us. Gary Bettman is painted to be a villian but he at least has a vested interest in the sport.
