Not surprized. Bettman doesn't suck. he put the nhl on the map. I know he'll always get booed at Prudential center, because thats what Devils fans do.
He really put them on the map - moving the TV rights to a crappy network that not everyone gets and making sure ESPN never mentions hockey. Moving franchises to cities that have no support for the NHL and having a lock out and having almost no marketing plan to grow the fan base.
Not to mention the conflict of interest that currently exists by having Colin Campbell as the dean of discipline when his son is an active NHL player. He's doing a heck of a job with the NHL.
