After seeing that picture with Bettman and Snoop together got me thinking. This can be a strong partnership that generates more acceptance in the NHL. The NHL needs Snoop more than he needs us. Snoop is one the best business men/self-promoters alive. He knows Hockey and Canada is an untapped oil well to expand his image. So he shows up at games and states that he'll be starting youth hockey leagues in the OC. This is something Bettman should jump all over this opportunity. A buddy of mine years ago said that, "If you threw a bunch of sticks and skates in the ghetto you would have minorities playing in the NHL in no time." As generalized and stereotypical that statement is, there is some sense to it. I believe the NHL needs Snoop more than he needs the NHL. What do you guys think?
