Want to quiz commissioner Gary Bettman about the state of the NHL?

XM Satellite Radio will give listeners the chance to do just that, announcing plans Monday for a new show called NHL Hour hosted by Bettman and a rotation of league executives.

The weekly program, debuting Nov. 27 and also broadcasting on NHL.com, will be co-hosted by Bill Clement and encourages fans to submit questions via phone and e-mail.

maybe it will be blacked out here, much like the games Bettman and his henchmen stole from Center Ice subscribers?

All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du

You know that's true, or better yet, maybe only people from the quote-unquote non-traditional hockey markets will get to call in. Because you KNOW any, ANY hockey fan with half a brain will be calling in just to trash him. Personally, I give the show two weeks...tops...before they pull it!

NHL Network schedule

You may not lose any games, depending on where you live. We are not going to be able to get the NHL Network here in Austin (Time Warner cable), so the odds are that any NHL game which was purchased for the NHLN will not be on Center Ice. I don't think they have all the kinks ironed out, but I know WNY can get NHLN and some dish subscribers.

...why? Does he want to be publicly humiliated?

It's not a bad idea, really, but Bettman is so hated in the hockey world that I cannot see any positive responses coming out of this. In fact, I see it more or less people calling up to say how much the NHL sucks (myself included, as I wouldn't mind venting).

They better have screeners, for his sake, because Bettman is going to get chewed up and spit out by virtually everyone that calls...
