All the Gary Bettman interviews you can handle (and more?)

For those of you unfamiliar with the CBC outside of Hockey Night in Canada, Peter Mansbridge, host of The National, is kind of like Tom Brokaw and Walter Kronkite wrapped into one, an incredibly, incredibly respected broadcaster, and when he sits down with people on Canada's nightly newscast, it's a big deal.

Mansbridge sat down with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on Monday, and he did indeed confront the commissioner with the John Scott-David Clarkson scrap, the place of fighting and "the code," expansion and, well, probably some stuff they'll talk about on a later date...

Bettman also happened to speak on the CBC's Hockey Night in Canada radio show today...

And as Paul noted, he appeared on The Fan 590...

And if you're not in the mood for video, I uploaded the audio to my Soundcloud page:

Can we go back in time and prevent some of his interviews?  To suddenly have past interviews he’s done be stricken from my brain would be golden.  Trying to accomplish that with alcohol isn’t really an exact science, and God knows I’m no pharmacist.

All I can tell you is that Bettman sounds like he finally got his to-do list done:

1. Win lockout;

2. Sell Coyotes;

3. Sell Devils, Panthers;

4. Poop for the first time since 2006.

...and that poop will be the egg that hatches the next NHL commissioner.
