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.
