Customer Review

on 4 October 2013
While I have never been in a position to boo Gary Bettman, I've certainly understood many of those that have. Whether it is a lack of transparency from the NHL top or the media is doing a bad job of reporting events, Bettmann has gained a reputation for being someone not in tune with the game and especially its (Canadian) fans. And in this last lockout I generally stood behind the NHLPA, thinking the owners (and Bettman) was the greedier of the two sides

After reading this book I have a new found respect for Bettman, the job he does and how he in reality protects the best hockey league in the world. It covers a lot of ground, from franchise re-locations, finances and disciplinary concerns in the game.

One thing I didn't like is the amount of numbers being thrown around, the finances are a big part of what Bettman has done right, but at a point I simply don't care if a cable network deal has gone up $300.000 over 4 years. However you can easily skip these parts if you wishes.
