Did anyone else find it odd when Bettman congratulated the Ducks during the Cup presentation by saying "you've managed to win the Stanley Cup in only your 14th season." Uh, is that part really an accomplishment? Didn't Florida get to the Finals in their third season?
I know at least one of the other relatively recent expansion teams - Tampa Bay - won one quicker than that. But I guess compared to teams like the Leafs (40 years and counting) and Blackhawks 14 years is pretty good.Oh, or Bettman could now be completely insane. That can't be ruled out.
Someone could have also told Bettman that he managed to move the NHL from being the hot sport on ABC and ESPN to the Versus Network and playing second fiddle to pre-Preakness coverage on NBC in just three or four years. That's also quite an accomplishment.
It's sad to think that Bettman was once THE commissioner with all the answers. Now the NHL would be much better served with someone else at the helm.
