Last quote by Gary Bettman

That right there is what we in this town call a classic 'tweener' situation. Was that goal interference? Or not? I don't really know. No one really knows, ya know? I'm not sure the refs even know. Does it even matter? The answer always seems to be somewhere in-between - a tweener - and it usually depends on which team you're rootin' for. OK then, enjoy dontawn Pittsburgh.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Olympic Games

Why did we do it five times? Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time but we have been unable to quantify any benefit from it.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Olympic Games

When the IOC comes to us and says, by the way we know it cost $15 to $20 million to send your players between insurance, charter costs and accommodations for the players' ... well we're not going to pay for that. If they don't value our participation why are we going. From our standpoint there may not be any next steps. Remember, this is February, there is no baseball, no football, it is just us and basketball and we just disappear. We don't get content for the NHL Network, we don't get content for our social media platforms and NHL.com.feedback

While in a particular case, and one such as this, the ten (10) game penalty may seem harsh, the purpose of Rule 40 is to protect the Officials and ensure the integrity of the game. Therefore, any inappropriate conduct by Players vis-a-vis Officials cannot be condoned or tolerated.feedback

It is incredible disruptive. What business in the prime of its selling season shuts down for three weeks. It affects the competitiveness of the league, it affects the schedule not just for those three weeks but for the rest of the season with compression.feedback

We disappear when football and baseball are gone and it's just us and basketball. It's very, very difficult to manage a season with that type of disruption.feedback

Jan 30 2017 - Olympic Games

There's the worldwide stage that the Olympics provides except they don't promote NHL hockey. They take the players and run their own tournament. It's great to have the world's best-on-best play but, in the final analysis, the restrictions that the IOC (International Olympic Committee) imposes are difficult when you're in our situation, particularly where we are the only sports league or sport that has to stop its season to participate if we choose to participate (at the Games). There's nothing new on that regard.feedback

It would be a challenge to find anyone who took greater pride in being a Boston Bruin than Milt Schmidt did – be it as a player, an executive or an ambassador over the 80-plus years he served the franchise, the City of Boston and the National Hockey League.feedback

Jan 04 2017

An ultimate competitor, a mainstay of two Bruins Stanley Cups as a player and architect of two more as the Bruins' general manager, Milt was a landmark presence in Boston's sports landscape.feedback

Sep 30 2016

The premise behind the way we did this event was we hadn't done it in over a decade, let's bring it back, let's bring it back big and bold.feedback

Sep 30 2016

It's safe to say there will be another World Cup and more and more World Cups on a regular basis. We haven't sat down with the Players' Association yet to decide whether or not if it should be in four years or three years or five years. That's something that will be on the table.feedback

Sep 26 2016

I'm not going to disagree with him (Daly).feedback

Sep 23 2016

It's been sensational. It's exactly what we expected. We wanted this to feel like and be a major event. We predicted that the competition would be better than any international tournament to date, that it would have a big-event feel.feedback

Sep 16 2016 - Olympic Games

The game plan is to use this (World Cup) as a foundation for new, more energized effort to give us a bigger presence outside of North America.feedback

Sep 16 2016 - Olympic Games

The fact we are doing a World Cup and we believe it is going to be huge success, and that we are going to continue to do it on a regular basis does not mean we can't also do the Olympics.feedback

Sep 16 2016 - Olympic Games

The fact that there are complications relevant to the stopping of our season in the middle at a very prime time ... and the difficulties of dealing with the International Olympic Committee and the International Ice Hockey Federation are really the factors if we continue to go.feedback
