Good & Bad Bettman

from Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette,

So compared with the wreckage that went before, Bettman is practically Pete Rozelle. He has ruled with an iron hand, he had definite ideas and a definite direction and no one can say that he hasn’t been busy commishing all along - although the league would arguably be better off if it had operated without a commissioner all these years.
Bettman’s tenure has been a mixed bag at best: on the plus side of the ledger are the entry of NHL pros into the Olympic Games, the crackdown on clutching and grabbing, the long overdue move to a shootout to decide games that are tied after five minutes of overtime and, above all, the much touted Collective Bargaining Agreement under which the league now operates.
