Bettman wants to investigate and try to stop all long term contracts??? Fuck that, he threw away a whole year of hockey to get the contract he got with the NHLPA, their agents are smart enough to manipulate it a little in their favour, and the owners are so brain dead, they revert to not being able to control themselves, and Big bad Bettman needs to step in and save the day.
Fuck you Bettman
It's not about the fact that they are long term contracts. The issue is whether or not the teams purposely made the length of the contract past the year they expect the play to retire. It's about circumventing the cap. Nothing will come out of it unless they can prove Phili and Chicago expect those players to retire before the end of their contract.
