He wants to make hockey into some sort of soccer/basketball game on ice.
I can not find the words to express my dislike for Bettman. If there is one thing almost all Canadian fans are united in it is hatred for that guy. Hockey is not basketball, it is not gonna become basketball. You guys are not gonna become a nation of rabid hockey fans and abandon baseball, football and basketball. Fuck expansion. The north-east, upper midwest and California seem to be the spots in the USA where people actually like hockey.
Fuck Crosby too, I'm sick of seeing that whiny bitches face on all sort of commercials, they want kids to be like that goof? Years ago when he was with Rimouski Oceanic he was gonna come down to London and show the Knights how to play hockey in the Memorial Cup. Oceanic lost 4-0. Don Cherry had a good rant about diving and comparing it to soccer players, I'll see if I can find it.
