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.

What is good for Bettman is not necessarily good for hockey

I have never hated someone more in my life. He is the single reason why I have moved to NFL as my favourite league. This clown makes me sick. I love it when Ron Maclean gives him the grinds everytime he is on CBC.

I can't believe this Hester Street Schlockmeister lasted this long.He must have caught a few of the owners together, socializing in the mens room at one time.

NHL you deserve him.

Misha.

Seriously?...Is this question really rhetorical?

This guy is a Joke...plain and simple!

I wish my family doctor pulled in as much as this guy...there is no justification in this world!

best game on earth except for the bunch of zebras and one weasel.

Someone has to pay him to keep our cup south of the border.

The little prick has done nothing to deserve that kind of money.

Salary cap?

Oh sure, the Leaf's cup is just around the corner now!

What next, play fair warm and huggy hockey where no one keeps score?

He's not a hockey man. He's a freakin little weasel bean counter that has all but ignored Canada.

Fire his a$$!

This little weasel doesn't deserve a penny of that money. Some of the other executives in the NHL should get better paid. Bettman is clueless when it comes to hockey !

I know there are a lot of disgruntled hockey fans that think Bettman is snubbing Canada,and I am one of them. If you look at the big picture though, a lot of the money that goes to the N.H.L.to keep the league viable does come from the U.S. He is trying to get more fan interested in the U.S. because there is big money from the Networks. As much as Bettman is a disliked person, he is just doing his job to keep all teams tuned and maintained. No matter what he does, lets remind ourselves that we Canadians should be Very Proud of all are Canadian Players who play all over the U.S.A. and for thier teams. We are the best in Hockey, it's our game, never forget that. And don't worry, we will get more Canadian teams. The writing is on the wall!

When are the owners going to listen to the fans and kick that CLOWN to the curb!!!! 7 MILLION a year for putting a perfectly good league in the garbage is crazy. And owners don't bother firing him and replacing him with Bill "the puppet" Daly.
