So when NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman joined the “Boomer & Carton” show on Monday morning, Esiason couldn’t hold back: “I’m very mad at you, Gary. … You guys really screwed this thing up. You really did.”

“How do you think we feel?” Bettman responded to Esiason’s displeasure. “It’s to say the least disappointing, frustrating.
