I hear Allen Eagleson is looking for a part time job to top off his retirement income. Might not take the job as he didn't get an invite to the '72 Canada-Russia Series reunion. Oh, I forgot. It is only the owners that steal.

Literally any person or even inanimate object could do a better job. Personally I am partial to a bag of pucks as it has a certain poetry to it.

Contrary to popular belief Bettman works for the owners and they tell him what to do.

League insiders say Bettman has been instructed by the owners not to go any further in negotiations with the players. He doesn’t have any wiggle room after putting a 50-50 deal on the table last month.
“(Bettman) is done,” said the insider. “Pointless to pretend (he’s going to go any further) and give false hope.”

I am going to answer who I would chose to be the Commissioner of the NHL. I have two suggestions.

1) Igor Larionov

2) Peter Statsny

Both are true international hockey players and executives who I think would put the benefit of the sport above all else, and have the ability and respect to make it happen.

I actually think Ken Dryden would be a decent option. He's a very educated man.

If I had a choice which we dont,neither do the players, its the Owners League

Owner - I would probabily pick Bettman, why else would I have just given him a good raise before the lock-out?
Players choice - I would probabily like a Respected,educated former Player
Fan choice - I would pick Mr. Bean (entertaining, and not having to hear him talk)
