And c'mon man why do you have to be rude to me? The truth about Bettman is probably somewhere in the middle. Do you really think he's booed at arenas around the league without any cause at all?

Do you really feel like the NHL is run the right way?
The truth about Bettman is he is the public figure behind those who do the things that make you think the league isn't run right.

Like I said, I think Bettman has his flaws regarding CBA negotiations, but the majority of actions he does is directly by the owners. That really is who you should be griping about, Bettman just follows their directions. He's booed because of what the owners expect out of him more than what he's done on his own. The NHL is run based on what the owners want more than what Bettman pushes for individually.
