The worst thing about being on the west coast is that when I want to post at night, everyone else is asleep or passed out

Is it lonely at the meetings?
* Kevin Riley = The moral conscience AND movie reviewer for cfl.ca.  :)
* When in doubt, always ask (WWKD) What Would Kevin Do?
* Forgive me for always taking the High Road.  It's the ONLY Road I know.

beats me, I have never been invited, which is also probably good for the NHL

Bettman has lasted 25yrs and has grown the NHL exponentially, while balancing the whims of billionaire owners.

He delivers. The fans support him too, otherwise the numbers would say the opposite.

Oh yeah - I forgot to add: it's not a popularity contest.

Yeah I agree FYB.
He's been an unbelievably successful commissioner both from an ownership and players perspective. He's grown incomes, the game, the exposure for all concerned. Annoying to many in mannerisms etc but quite brilliant.
Goes to show that your innate knowledge of the sport has virtually nothing to do with success as commissioner.
Doubt that he can even skate.
