Does Gary Bettman deserve his $7M salary?
Mon, July 12, 2010

QMI Agency

Commissioner Gary Bettman's pay package increased to $7.23 million US in 2008-09, the SportsBusiness Journal reported Monday.

While his pay rose just 1.7% from the previous season, Bettman's compensation has almost doubled since his pre-lockout total of $3.77 million.

Bettman's pay ranks behind MLB commissioner Bud Selig ($18.35 million) and NFL boss Roger Goodell ($10.9 million).

Given that other sports leagues in North America pay their top boss more, do you think Bettman is adequately compensated for his work leading the NHL? Have your say in our forum.

Good job! I absolutely adore your main post..this is actually a excellent webpage. I undeniably will certainly revisit. I am subcribed. At long last a place well worth bumping. I usually do not post that much. However I needed to comment regarding your post.

Get rid of the bum for good... I cannot believe he gets paid that much. He should be getting about $100,000 a year not 7 million. The only thing clear in his own mind is how to muffle hockey in Canada while trying to grow it in the USA. THey even considered Europe expansion but what about Canada. There are 3 cities right now that could easily support an NHL franchise a lot better than some of the ones that exist in the states right now. Cities like Winnipeg, Quebec and Hamilton could easily get more fans out on a regular basis compared to the 3 lowest attended games in the states. Bettman doesn't have a clue and needs to get over himself... he thinks he's such a big shot but all the other Commissioner in other sports are laughing at him. It's funny... everytime I watch him awarding the Stanley Cup everyone booos him... LOL

You got to be kidding, he is an egotistical jerk. Who is against Canada, and dosent want to bring teams from the states, to Canada. Even thought several american teams are losing money big time, which sold out teams have to help pay for. Because he is a gay looking american. Get over yourself Bettman. Canada is a hockey country. Wise up. He is not worth 2 million let alone seven

No way, diffinitly not. Bettman is a snake and a flake. He has done more to ruin the NHL than any previous commissioner. He is anti Canada and to pro USA, get rid of thr bum.

Should remove him from position and replace him with either Yzerman,Lemieux or 99.Terrible for the game and especially for Canadian cities.

This guy is payed way too much for what he does--7 million? Colin Campbell does most of the work for the NHL. He's a lawyer, and doesn't understand what makes hockey click.

pay if double if he just promises to go away...this guy is the greatest embarrassment in sports and the reason hockey will never succeed in the U.S

This guy will eventually kill the NHL. He is 100% pro American, and has no interest in Canada ever having a stanley CUp again.

Which would be best?

Could not manage a Two Hole Outhouse

Or

Could not organize a drinking party at a Brewery

I'm not even sure why he gets paid.......This should be an honorary position with others included. Does he think he's a csar of hockey. If you want to be a dictator.. move to Cuba and see how Castro handles you
