He's at it again, except this time he's got a different team and it's not the Penguins!

Bettman also thinks the NHL should stay in Phoenix. We already know that he's clueless.

Oh nice... Every coaches should teach that to young players then. It's part of the game.

So If this happen again in the next Habs Bruins game but its the head a Chara or any other Bruins hitting the knuckle would it still be part of the game ?

I mean yes it will be intentional but please, don't pretend we're idiots saying Chara didnt want to hit Max Pax....

If this becomes part of the game, then I'll watch another sport.

Why not add spikes on the board to add a little ''lol'' factor? Or concrete blocks that randomly fall on the ice at times?

What a stupid league.

Bettman is probably a good business man. But his opinion about the actual on-ice game is about as valid as a Bruins fan pov on smart hockey.

they all know it was dirty

but they try to protect the image of the league, because if they start saying it wasn't a accident one of their star player will look like a murder.

what a sad league

Why not add spikes on the board so you can impale opponents to add a little ''lol'' factor? Or concrete blocks that randomly fall on the ice at times? Better, give flamethrowers to the refs!

What a stupid league.

A "strong hockey play" is not one that involves interference. Interference is a penalty and against the rules. Just like tripping, cross checking, and the rest. Had Chara cross checked Max, would it have been a "strong hockey play"? Of course not, illegal plays are the opposite of "strong hockey plays", they are against the rules for a reason.

That's exactly the problem with the league.

Everything is part of the game. They make no rules to change it. Chara didn't get a suspension because they have no rules against sending someone on the stanchion.

If there's a rule for everything, believe me, the players would be MUCH more cautious and we will see the head injury drop.

You punish a accidental high stick, or an accidental delay of game.. but an accident that breaks someone's neck is part of hockey? Especially if the accident is easily avoidable IF there's a rule against it.

Really? Hockey in Nashville, Phoenix, Columbus and Florida is great business. Part of business also is protecting your assets i.e. players.

Again, Bettman is the most stubborn person I have ever seen.

His fight with Balsillie made that much clear. Bettman just doesn't have it in him to ever admit to as much as a slight mistake on the part of the league.

Having hockey in Atlanta, where no one shows up even when they're winning is part of the game too, right ?

He also said they could find another transporter than Air Canada if they don't wanna do business with the NHL anymore.

What a clueless, arrogant piece of ****. I don't think transporters will come rushing at the NHL's doorstep to be their next sponsor... In fact, if I owned a business which was associated with the NHL at this moment I'd probably do the same as Air Canada.

Yeah it's still part of the game, because you're a failure at your job. /golfclap

I don't think there's any doubt that he's a good businessman. In fact, it might be his tendency to favour business objectives over the health and quality of the sport that makes him a poor commissioner.

Great mentality there showed by Bettman. Keep going at it Napoleon. You'll hit your Waterloo soon enough.
