Good article with quotes from Ted Lindsay.
Hockey Hall of Famer and union pioneer Ted Lindsay on Wednesday defended the work of commissioner Gary Bettman during the lockout, saying players need to be more respectful in their comments.
"One thing that really has bothered me when I'm reading the paper on all of this is the way they're talking about 'that idiot Bettman', or any of the other stupid adjectives they've used to describe him," said Lindsay, 87. "They and the fans and the media need to realize that Bettman is doing his job and fulfilling his responsibility to the owners, just like (NHLPA executive director) Don (Fehr) is to the players. The players need to respect and understand that. Don't go bad-mouthing Bettman like that."
