Bettman May Face Tough Questions From BOG

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The NHL commissioner may lose sleep Tuesday night in the city that never sleeps as he prepared to sit down with the board of governors Wednesday at the New York law offices of Proskauer Rose in Times Square.

League sources told QMI Agency they expect Bettman to face pointed questions from some owners who have bitten their tongues long enough as the NHL lockout hits Day 81 Wednesday with an estimated $1.2 billion in lost revenues.

"I would think the owners who haven't said anything are going to finally have their say after they get updated on where the discussions are at because nobody is happy where this is at," said a league insider Tuesday. "Most certainly, (Bettman) has his allies, but if one owner who isn't happy with the fact that the business is being damaged by this lockout stands up, then I think you could see a group of owners stand up to have their say.

"Nobody wants the league to give the players everything they want, but not everybody is prepared to lose the season because they're concerned with how the business is going to recover from this, especially in the United States."

I wish Mr. I was a few years younger and in better shape than he’s in these days. If he was, I think he could be a catalyst for getting rid of the Garden Gnome.

In Garrioch’s world, there is no strategy, no maneuvering, it’s all just a series of reactions. Bruce lives in the moment like a seven-year old hockey player that religiously follows the puck around the rink.
