Electronic Keypad Lock With Code
I just got the latest issue of Hockey Digest in the mail yesterday and there was no mention of an NHL lockout.
But check this $%^& out, the fricken Kings won the Stanley Cup!!!
I tried to find the answer and could not, so would you guys please answer my question about commissioner (not Bettman, but just overall)
Who can fire current NHL commissioner, and who is responsible for hiring a new one. Does commissioner needs to be elected every x years or once NHL hires commissioner he stays in his role until NHL fires him or he resigns?
I would love to have something witty or sarcastic to say, but the prospect of losing even part of the season,(much less the entire season) in which the Kings attempt to defend their first Cup is depressing.
The NHL as a whole needs to do a better job at promoting the game in the US, while record numbers watch the sport live at team venues, ratings still suffer, still not enough national exposure.
I still think the league needs to mic up the players and do a weekly pay perview game at $9.99 a week.
Personally, i'm tired of listening to the sides bitch about money, while the entire country is in an economic spiral.
This is about greed and ego's more than anything else.

Live from Las Vegas....All Sarcasm all the time!!!!
this is a direct response to comments made in the media that the league and players could extend the current cba for one year so that they can have more time to negotiate. this is actually a good thing in the sense that the league and players aren't kicking the current problem down the road. he doesn't say anything about what happens if the league and players are close as the deadline nears.
the one thing that drives me crazy about these comments is the way that bettman seems to obscure what actually happened in 2005. he makes it sound like the owners had this cba unjustly foisted upon them, when in reality, the owners won major concessions from the players. this is annoying because he is assuming that nhl fans are idiots.
it's our fault. many fans sided with the owners in the last cba fight (wrongly imo) because we bought into their claims about out of control costs and ticket prices. now we have record revenues, higher than ever ticket prices, and a growing chasm between the wealthy teams and the rest of the league. i hope that fans realize just how stupid bettman and the owners think they are.
I just think it's foolish to assume that the strength of the league should be placed on the teams in the most perilous financial position. The big hitters know they've got a good thing and should just assume it's like college football when you have to buy the home win. The answer is revenue sharing or contraction. Contraction won't make the big owners more money, but revenue sharing will. If the NFL teams can figure it out they can as well.
