Bettman is making it way TOO obvious who his rooting interest is.

The love for the Penguins really is sickening. They had one heck of a turnaround after almost going out of business. Crosby is a good player, but he's a typical whiny goal scorer. He needs someone like Messier to tell him how to play the game. Ovechkin is head and shoulders above Crosby; the league should be marketing him.

Those stats for one game against the Flyers don't really bother me. The Flyers are an old style North American hockey team. Also, the Pens are much faster than the Flyers, which leads to more trips/hooks/etc. However, it's been going on all season and I've seen all 3 NY area teams @#$#ed by it.

Bettman has all the management acumen of Isiah Thomas. He's in denial and Pitt is one of his only success stories. Recently he said that the southern franchises were not failures, the guy is incompetent and truly in denial.

I guess that explains why Crosby is the only NHL player who has a press conference after the game.

oh i think thats a big part of the league's cowtowing to piittsburgh and especially crosby .. the pens were on the brink of bankruptcy or at least thats what mario lemieux was saying and played bettman like the fool he is and they threw money to pittsburgh, rigged the draft for pittsburgh so they could stay in the state and draw more early in the game penalties and late in tight game penalties then asny team i've ever seen .. there's no doubt in my mind that bettman the man who has done everything possible to ruin the game wants his legacy to be the fish that saved pittsburgh

I am surprised that Bettman loves such a big market team like the Pens. I would have thought the hockey hotbed of Columbus or Nashville would be his obvious choice.

i see he suspended carillo of philly for 1 game and fined the philly coach 10 g's for an unpenalised body check because it was in the 3rd period and he made it clear to teams that no ''messages'' would be tolerated angry body checks are part of the game .. oh well one less guy to be hitting crosby
