"I got to be honest, I personally think he's an idiot,'' White said of Bettman. "Since he's come in I think he's done nothing but damage the game."
Well that'll increase the candor and good vibes that have led to negotiations potentially reaching a two-week freeze.
More White, from the Freep:
"If you think of all the moves he's made," White said, "teams that are all struggling seem to be the teams that he put in places where there's not viable markets for hockey. Three work stoppages -- I don't know if he's in control of the owners or what he's saying, but I think it's only seven of the owners that have to agree on something to have something pass. You'd think it'd be at least 50%. It just doesn't seem like they're running a democratic process, if you will."
he's done nothing but damage the game? orly? white should be writing love notes to bettman for helping him make almost 3 mill a year - not calling him an idiot because of 3 lockouts that he had no control in preventing. it's funny to hear a player complain about expansion, though.
