I thought that was the point that pissed Bettman off. When Balsilie was strutting around with a Pens logo on his Blackberry.

Nashville and Phoenix just made things way worse.
He tried to buy the Predators at a high premium off Boots who bought the team through fradulent means.

So the NHL said no to Balsillie a second time even after they were complicit in soliciting a buyer with shady, criminal connections.
