Not that Bettman cares what I think. But about the only way I could support a salary cap is if Gary Bettman and the NHL pledged to bring NHL hockey back to Winnipeg and Quebec City. I lost all respect for Bettman in era of the glowing puck and when Winnipeg and Quebec moved to Colorado and Phoenix. Since then I've believed that he's nothing more than a Madison Ave suit who was trying to Americanize a game that Americans cared little about. We've watched several expansion teams struggle in markets that clearly aren't working. We've seen relocations that bordered on bizarre: Carolina? Are you kidding me? Phoenix? Hockey in a desert? If Bettman would take the podium and promise that he will do everything he can to bring teams back to Canada, then I'd begrudgingly accept that maybe he's slightly concerned with the good of the game. I'd also like to see him stand up and say that the NHL is going to make hockey work in Pittsburg and Buffalo, two American cities that have proved they can thrive as hockey markets. But if he's just doing this to increase the franchise values of Carolina and Nashville, so these guys can sell their teams and at least get back what they paid in expansion fees, then screw him.
