Couldn't find this so started a thread. I know we all pretty much hate him, except a few weirdo's, but who would you choose to replace Gary if you were the owners? As a fan I know the obvious answer is anyone... literally anyone: baby cousin, sister, a clown (oh wait that's what we have now), Arnold "I'll be back" Schwarzenegger, Peyton Manning. The point is that it doesn't really matter because anyone is better, but it would be nice to have a legitimate replacement to consider...

My choice is Aaron Rome of course, What's the guy not good at right?

Pointless thread

Obviously since Your asking if I was an Owner
I guess Bettman stays then and is not replaced, They didnt just have to give him a big extension, if they were not satisfied

As I have stated before a good chunk of the NHLPA has Bettman to thank too.
Without his over expansion and diluting the talent,
These guys would not be in the Big Leagues making the Big bucks, where everyone becomes a Millionaire

I see the fans being hateful of Bettman for obvious reasons
Maybe the Richer teams,who have to give back their expansion money to help these Teams continue to operate

If the players want to keep there membership rate up, they too will need to help subsidize these weaker Teams , not just the Owners

Donald Trump.


He already killed the USFL, and I'm not sure he knows much about hockey, I would rather just not take any chances. :P



I wish I could be comish, not just to make the 7-8 million that Gary makes but I think I could do a good job too, but seriously
I think alot of people could do a better job, I just hope next time it's a "hockey guy" once bettman's time is done.

This. He showed more intelligence in the first page of his book than Bettman has during the course of his entire life.

I did a thread on this a while back, to which I suggested Don Cherry or Wayne Gretzky.

But I would also throw in names such as these:

Brian Burke - Former NHL exec and accomplished GM a strong personality and good negotiator.
Pat Quinn - See under "Brian Burke," save for being a NHL exec.
Ken Holland - Heard someone mention his name - he's a quality executive, one of the smartest guys in the business and cares a lot for the game.
Bobby Orr - Like Gretzky, one of the most repsected players of all time, and also has experience as an agent. Can garner enough support to make things happen.
Ken Dryden - See under "Bobby Orr." Perhaps he can make up for being such a political failure (all due respect, but his losing York Centre was terribly embarassing).

Don Cherry, all Canadian league. Americans and Europeans burned at the stake.


Commissioner's Corner on CBC, brought to you by Molson Canadian.

Hey folks, first up, I want to let you know that I've managed to broker a long-term deal with NBC so our southern know-nothings can watch and learn more from us. Now on to business.

Zetterberg, great player, but he's gone and flopped all over the ice on this hit - who does he think he is, the next drama queen? This is a man's game for goodness sake, and if you can't survive it, get off the ice.

Look at that. Chara just goes and trips the guy with his stick on a play and sends him flying into the goaltender. That little weasel, I'm telling you, all a made-in-Europe product.

That's how a lot of people feel toward Cherry, but I personally think he's not that extreme. I say Cherry with Holland as deputy.
