We aren’t allowed to have nice things, such is life.

Ah the Stammer jokes.  There's something there about the season disappearing and Stammer disappearing in the playoffs...  Anyway, love the Bolts second only to the BULLS.

The best part of the handing out of the Stanley Cup, unless it’s the Penguins getting it, is the booing of Bettman every single time in every city. It warms my heart.

bettman  made it a first class league

the fans are dumb for the most part

Agreed...fans look like idiots when they boo him. He certainly does not give two a crap.

It’s never too soon, the most important thing is being first and the facts can sort themselves out later

Revenues rise each year. Up to $4.6 billion last year. 

Rules that have increased offensive production

2013 CBA

3 on 3 over time

NBC tv contract 

Putting franchise is Winnipeg and Vegas

Created a department of player safety (much more proactive in dealing with concussions than the NFL).

Fighting almost disappears (I know a lot of people may not like that but it must be done relative to today’s society/culture).

Games can be purchased digitally on a variety of platforms.

More parity in the league. Not too many playoffs around where the last team in knocks off the number one team. Each year the playoffs have upsets.

Legalized sports wagering (they were ahead of the NFL and NBA).

Is he a perfect commissioner? No. But he is better than what the NFL has for sure and not as left wing in his decisions as the NBA commish. And if you think Bettman is bad, you should have been around in the 1970s and 1980s. Those do nothing NHL commissioners (Ziegler and Stein) almost ran the league into the ground.
