ECHL is great hockey to watch.
I don't blame this on Bettman he is just he spokesperson for the owners. If the owners are taking the risk on building arenas are on the hook for the costs of all the staff in it and the whole staff of the orginazation plus taking the risk of players getting injured with guaranteed contracts and you aren't even getting 50% of the revenues? I think the players do need to compromise a bit. i wonder how Mario Lemieux feels now as an owner of a team. It would be interesting but I do feel the owners even as rich as they are should be entitled to atleast 50%. Not the current 43% owners 57% players.
