lighten up Teemu, it was done as a projection as to how far his team would go in the playoffs. it hardly changes anything, and if the team had any balls, they'd cut him loose for being that stupid anyway.
don't think this wasn't some obscure attempt by Bettman to suck up to the NHLPA though, for the labor talks.
he knows he has to offer them something.
Shanny must be tearing himself apart at the fact that he was undermined by his "boss". Why wouldn't Bettman have Shanny announce a "modified" suspension? He IS the disciplinarian.
Bettman's head can't fit thru doorways anymore.

same here, but if he averts a lock-out, he'll be back on my "good" list.
that would be extremely detrimental to the league's image right now.
