Most of the players I've talked to over the last few years like the job he's done for both them and the league. The league's articles give the players the chance to veto his contract, and they've overwhelmingly endorsed him each time it's come up... More

doin as good of a job as can be done. any commisioner is not going to be well liked, but if bettman was not doing what the board of govoners wanted, he'd be gone already.

He is doing a great job and it shows. The NHL is now the 3rd biggest sports league only behind the NFL and the MLB. And the NHL is catching up to the MLB very fast.

I and everyone I know thinks Bettman is a super nerd and should be replaced with a Canadian who is interested in getting at least 2 more teams back in Canada.

He has a regular podcast and confronts the questions head on. I like the guy, but giving Pitt, let alone HOST the winter classic is complete bull.

his boss(es) are pleased w/ his work. (And no, his bosses are NOT the fans). and he has demonstrated to be a good businessman for the league (or at least "act" like it). hard to argue w/ these results. it could be worse. Exhibit A: Selig. at least last night instant replay was used to confirm goals or non-goals.
