This is the face of the NHL (including fans) that everyone would sure just love to punch him like a punching/speed bag.
He becomes commissioner of NHL in 1993
Since then, there has been 3 NHL lockouts due to him.
He is not a fan favorite due the lockouts and he knows this. He get booed anywhere he appears at, either the NHL Draft, when to handout the Stanley Cup, or other appearances.
He has made pretty bad, if not real bad, decisions on where new expansion of an NHL team may end-up...particularly by him putting teams in the south, where they struggle for fans more so than not.
So why Bettman stick around for? why can't he just do us all fans and so forth a favor, and leave the game?
Does anyone know who G. Bettman's boss is? This guy needs to go.
This guy just sticks around for the money that he gets because he earns more and more every year.
