Gary Bettman quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
