And do you think if the NHL gets what its demanding in this round, we won't be right back here in 5, 7 or 8 years? I'm sorry but I'm not buying it and I'm putting about 70% of the blame on Bettman and his cronies.
Posters have been saying that Bettman was gone after this or that for a long time. I would like to see some put their money where their mouth is and stop with the predictions as he has survived through numerous supposed "Waterloos". He'll very likely survive again. Demonizing one person is generally counterproductive in viewing the true issues at hand in a conflict. "Why is Bettman in place?" is a better question to ask.
