Does the world really need any further proof that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is a clueless doofus?
Bettman isn't sure he wants NHL players in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, saying he doesn't want to interupt the regular season.
Ah, I see. God forbid a regular season Atlanta-Tampa game is delayed a couple of weeks in order to feature the NHL's best players in front of the whole wide world.
One player is already basically telling Bettman to go fuck himself. That would be Alex Ovechkin, the league's best player and someone who rightly wants to participate in the 2014 games on his home soil.
Here's a link to a good NYT article about the dispute.
