Bettman Should Have Participated In The Kings Banner Ceremony

from Tom Hoffarth of the LA Daily News,

Would anyone in attendance Saturday have showered recycled trash upon Bettman had he showed his face on the ice during Saturday's presentation, one in which Kings Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller was the master of ceremonies, every Kings player was introduced and handed a Tiffany ring, the Stanley Cup with all their names engraved on it was brought out and then passed around one more time and a ginormous banner was rolled out and then floated up into the rafters above the Kings bench?

Bettman would've been welcome to the party. He could have popped out of a cake, thrown confetti in the air and done doughnuts on the Zamboni.

But apparently it was too much of a risk for Little Man Hate.

This is one of the dumbest attempts to conjure Bettman hate I have seen. Then again it is the LA Daily News. Do they even know there is a hockey team in LA?

Bettman has never been part of banner-raising ceremony.  No one would have wanted him involved anyway.  Absolutely right, timbits.  This columnist is an idiot.  His hockey knowledge is so strong he called it a 9-year CBA.  Go back to covering the Lakers and stay away from hockey.
