Already holding a gun to winterpeg's head. He placed a deadline (can't remember what it is) for the 'peg to sell 13 000 seasons or the NHL will not approve the trade.
What a dink. I don't believe that an NHL club in the 'peg is a great idea. But there are no other options right now, at least you could try to make it work out there.
Bettmen goes out of his way to alienate huge portions of the NHL fanbase and wonders why he can't make a go of it down south. I honestly can't fathom why so many people support that league, especially in the states.
