Gary Bettman canceled his subscription.
This is a good article and hits in a lot of fundamental points -- chief among them being that the NHL can no longer afford to plunge its way into the south and just assume that the game will grow organically and those teams will be financially sound. Its just not going to happen.

This was a stupid decision from Bettman to begin with - instead of facing the music and making some tough choices, he seems to favor labor disputes.

The eventual remedy, when hes stripped all he can from the players, is going to be contraction and/or revenue sharing bordering on socialism.
