    ``I like what Bettman has to say in the article below. It's what we've been telling the NHLPA fans and CBA lovers for a while.

    Bettman said during the current CBA a team in the top one-third in salaries has been three times more likely to make the playoffs than a team in the bottom third.

    "That is a status quo with which we simply cannot continue to live. Our game and our fans deserve better."

    "We need a system that will eliminate the disparities in payrolls, so that a team's ability to compete depends on its team-building skills, not on its ability to pay," he added.

    Bettman doesn't allude to the fact that the teams that don't have high payrolls are that way because of their own fault, and poor ticket sales.
