Abel to Yzerman

Gary Bettman was willing to talk to me, a fan not a journalist, and I appreciate that. I really do.
Anyone who follows A2Y knows that the 19 are not kind to Bettman. We call him Li’l Gary in derision. We thank him and then call him an ass. Grown-up stuff like that, and worse. Much worse.
Gary still chose to let me interview him at the Shanahan Summit. He didn’t have to, many others wouldn’t, but he did.
And if Gary Bettman chooses to speak with me again, and I hope he does, I want him to understand his interviews will always be given fair coverage at Abel to Yzerman. Nothing will be taken out-of-context. Ever.
Gary Bettman, and everybody else, will always be given a fair and biased forum at A2Y to voice their ideas, opinions, and rebuttals. We are passionate Red Wings fans, and extremely biased, yet will treat everyone fairly who comes to talk with us. Once you had a chance to voice your opinion, the 19 will tell you what they think about it. They always do.
After the jump, my interview with Gary Bettman. Unedited. I comment on the interview later, for now you will hear it as it happened.
If you do end up reading this: Thanks Gary.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: firstname.lastname@example.org
