Glad to have the Rangers back.
Season is going to be terrible quality of hockey (hamstrings will be pulled) but whatever. Schedule is going to be repetitive and no getting to see East vs. West but it's hockey.
So TENTATIVELY happy!!
I know both sides are at fault but that does not excuse Bettman from being the very worst commissioner in sports history!
He didn't know a puck from a duck but for some reason was handed the gig.
Question: what has to happen for him to lose his job? Is he, like every other commissioner, working for the owners? If yes, then the big market owners need to step and in and can his smarmy azz!
LET'S GO RANGERS!!!
I'm hoping he lost the confidence of a lot of owners with this "negotiation."

They need a real hockey guy in there. What do you guys think of Wayne Gretzky as Commish? Just a thought.
A lot of the players have been playing overseas though, which is why they want to start as early as January 15th.

Is Bettman trying to wipe this sport out???? He must work for NBA
That's where he came from, IIRC...

Can't wait. It'll be a sprint to the playoffs.
