This. Never gonna understand the hate for Bettman. At least in the time that I've been a fan, the game has improved.
Only reasoning behind it I can see is the limited amount of Canadian franchises. But, as I'm not Canadian, I could care less. Meh.
I don't like his personality at all. Seems like a smug arrogant *******. I used to really hate him, mostly because my dad really hates him. But he really has improved the game IMO. And he is trying to grow the game.
There were a lot of super casual fans or people seeing their first hockey game or some **** like that there last night. Nobody around us really seemed to understand the magnitude of Milan Hejduk at all. And it's not like there were a bunch of little kids or something. Me and my peeps would cheer every time he touched the puck in the 3rd, but we couldn't get anybody else on board.
Then there were also three girls below us who were Preds fans. One had a Rinne shirt, and she went nuts when he relieved Lindback. Some idiot small boys and even a couple of guys who were probably 20 something were throwing popcorn at them all game. The little kids' parents didn't even do anything.
Worst section I've ever sat in. Between people showing no connection to the Avs or the game at all and those retards throwing popcorn at three girls who were having a really good time, the people around us were almost insufferable. No respect for the game, team, or other people.
I didn't get to see the game, only the highlights but wow did Giggy have a bad game. Plus Dutchy scores in the last game so hopefully that helps out his confidence for next season but couldn't he have scored when it actually meant something?
