The Malik Report

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Ian White has been one of the more outspoken players during the NHL lockout.
Most of his wrath has been directed at NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. On Friday, White fired a few more shots at the man he holds responsible for the sport's labor troubles.
“I got to be honest, I personally think he's an idiot,'' White said of Bettman. “Since he's come in I think he's done nothing but damage the game. If you think of all the moves he's made, the teams that are all struggling seem to be the teams he put in places where there's (less support for hockey).
“Just three lockouts (since Bettman became commissioner in 1993). I don't know if he's in control of the owners or what he's saying. I think it's (eight) of the owners have to agree to have something passed. You'd think it would be at least 50 percent. It just doesn't seem like they're running a democratic process.''
Also, I had a coversation with George and he is shooting for a soft-return next week. Things may change, but that is the gameplan at this point.
