Pretty funny that he makes twice as much as he did in the pre-cap days. Think the owners are happy he broke the players union?

Among the "heads" of the four major North American sports, he is paid the least, yes?

According to a report in Sports Business Journal, Bettman was paid $7.2 million US, up 1.7 per cent from the previous year. However his pay package still lags behind other major North American sports commissioners — Major League Baseball’s Bud Selig earns $18.35 million while the National Football League’s Roger Goodell gets $10.9 million.

I cannot find the NBA guy. Oh well its to early for me any way.

EDIT: Would help if I read the article :P

downright disgusting - I don't care if he's "doing what the owners want", he's not even a hockey guy and is a disgrace to the game...

Just because the league is doing "ok" - doesn't mean it couldn't be doing great...

As I've said all along, Ken Dryden should be the commissioner.

Here's how it works with Bettman.

Having Bettman as commish of the NHL for the fans / history / hockey = Worst Candidate.

BUT

Having Bettman as commish of the NHL for the owners / business wise = Perfect Candidate.

once again - just because the owners are making money and the league is doing ok, does not mean it couldn't be doing WORLD'S better - Bettman is NOT by any means (even for the owners) the best candidate and their idiotic for allowing him to remain in position for this long...

What's his cap hit? Does he have a NTC? Perhaps Chicago would trade him for Huet and Campbell.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Bettman isn't as bad as most of you make him out to be.

His job is to insure the financial stability of the league, and he's doing a good job of that.

Here's an article comparing the pay of the other commissioners, it appears Bettman is right with the other 3.

Bettman is setting the league up for a big fall. Things appear to be going alright for now because he lucked out and got three years of fantastic Stanley Cup finals. Where was his "success" when we were forced to watch Tampa Bay, Carolina and Anaheim lift the Cup?

The NHL has been getting more prominent in the US, but I have a feeling he's sowing the collapse of the league by refusing to allow failing markets to move.

But I agree, from the Board of Governor's side, or whatever they're called, business is good, so why not keep him?

But he's a lying ******.

Making money is the number one priority in today's age.

You do actually want the NHL to be the best hockey league in the world right?

Here's some good facts about Bettman that I found on the blog I linked earlier.

When Bettman was hired back in 1993, NHL league revenues were $400mm/year. They’re now close to $3bn, and the league has made money and grown revenue every year under his tenure. Not that it matters but this is why he was hired.

When Bettman took over, the NHL was pulling in less than 40% of what the NBA was pulling in. Today that number is around 75%.

The NBA? David Stern managed to LOSE $400mm last season. Wait until their CBA comes up for negotiation.

Remember, it was Bettman who instituted the Canadian Assistance Plan (meaning why we have six teams in Canada and not 3).

The whole Versus deal for American audiences? ESPN gave a lowball bid with the BOG declined near unanimously. Versus came in with an offer for more money which was accepted. Stupid and dumb, right?

Except that Versus ratings for NHL hockey are now better than they were at any time when ESPN had the rights.

Read that last statement again. Now spread the gospel.

Think about the problems that Gary Bettman has to deal with and compare those to Roger Goodell (uncapped year, potential lockout, all the players in trouble with the law), Bud Selig (where to even start), David Stern (losing money, a “soft” cap, Lebron James, “PR and image issues”, etc.).

However, while Bettman is a smart cookie, he is beyond horrible on tv (and we won’t even get into the whole “seriously dude- what is with thef****** mom jeans at the Olympics?”. His mannerisms, speaking style, posture…you’d think the league would spend $100K and have him work with someone to make him easier to take (on the radio he’s marginally better).

This is irrelevant - that's comparing a league in a time when sports in general were down, to current times without taking into consideration inflation, TV rights, the leagues OWN network, etc...

This is using skewed examples to make a point... for the final time - just because the owners are making money and the league is doing OK(not great, JUST OK) does not mean it couldn't be doing WORLD'S better
