With yesterday being another historical day in the hockey world with the retirement of Nicklas Lidstrom, Gary Bettman, although saying kind words about Lidstrom, wasted no time by putting his mark on another moment in hockey stating:

 

 

“Nick Lidstrom’s trademarks were his respect for hockey, his humanity and his commitment to his craft — as well as his devotion to the highest standards of success. For so many seasons, Nick gave the very best to his team, his city and his League; as he moves on to the next stage of his life, we wish the very same for him and his family.”

 

 

Hey Gary, Shut Up!   Thanks, but no one wants to hear your comments from the peanut gallery.  Let me ask you all something, when a team wins the cup and he makes that announcement, does his voice annoy anyone else?  Stick a fork in it buddy, and get back behind your desk.
