No Debating Visors

from Sports Illustrated,
Gary Bettman gave a speech at a Canadian media awards banquet on Wednesday. Judging by the transcript of his remarks, either his sport is off to a spectacular start or he had just filled a mammoth Ritalin prescription. Gone was the dourness the commissioner had exhibited for most of the last three years, when Bettman routinely trashed his sport, trashed the players and made us all wonder why the nickname Little Ball of Hate had been wasted on Pat Verbeek. Bettman was beaming on Wednesday, and rightly so. The NHL's new era if off to a rollicking start. Scoring is up. Obstruction is down, or at least being heavily penalized. But one unfortunate holdover from the old NHL already has reared its head: the tired and foolish debate about visors.
