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.

Gary Bettman is like the warden of the notoriously violent San Quentin prison in California. He get paid a lot to take a lot of crap.

Most of the NHL's owners are either clowns or crooked or both. They make and approve bonehead decisions and let Bettman be their public face and look like the idiot, not that he doesn't already, but even more so.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!!!

Controversial little weasel. I just can't stand him. He does nothing good for Hockey. One os those dick-heads...My way or the highway!!!. Is this jerk on a contract? I hope it runs out soon. It makes me sick just looking at his picture, I can't imagine what it would do to me if I saw him in person! I would probably vomite!!

NO!!!! Gary doesn't deserve it! He should be fired!

Are you serious there is no human being who does what he oversees worth that much especially him

Never really knew how much he (or the others at the league office) made. All I can say is, give me a freakin' break. If ever there was reason to finally sever the umbilical cord that kept me tenuously tied to hovkey as a fan, this was it!

Considering Bettman hasn't secured a big US network deal, or helped grow struggling markets, I'd call him a failure. and failures shouldn't get raises
