Yeah, right. He'd expel all European players from the league within a month of taking the job.

He, on behalf of the owners (depends on who you talk to), has an agenda.

Yzerman would be a great commissioner. Just saying. I wish Lids didn't go back to Sweden, cause he would too. As would Gretzky or even Messier. Don Cherry....as much as I love the guy, I don't think that he'd be what the game needs. A little too much old time hockey. This is from a guy who outright yells at people when they make a single sound while Coach's Corner is on. s*** get's ugly.

Either way, I think that it should be someone who has actually played or at least coached in the NHL.

I can see Shanny getting the job sometime in the future, now that he's moving up the NHL corporate ladder.

This is brought up a lot when it comes to replacing old Bettman. Being commissioner entails more than ust giving awkward stuttering interviews and handing over the cup to a new team each summer. It's a high demand position requiring an educational background in law and labor relations. I don't think any former player except maybe Ken Dryden could make a crack at it.

Who started this s***? It won't die, no matter what hockey forum I seem to look at.

In extremely and overly simplistic terms, think of a sports commissioner as similar to a Chairman of the Board, and the Board of Governors (owners) as a Board of Directors, minus the influence of shareholders.

Now, I don't think that many view Chairmen of large corporations as "talking heads". They have a lot of influence in guiding an organization. Why does Bettman get re-branded as nothing more than a spokesman for the Board of Governors?

Don Cherry, Messier, Lidas, Yzerman, The Great One, George Parros after this career just to name a few.

Guy failed at the cursive part this should not be enough reason, to can his ass once and for all. He is bad for the game, doesn't respect its integrity nor its employees.

I really love how Vancouver and we boo'ed the crap out of him during the Stanley Cup celebrations.
