...telling everybody back in 2004 that ticket prices would become "more affordable" with a salary cap?

Guess what? They've gone up 39% on average.

and he rebut to this would probably be that hockey has become so popular under his tenure that teams have had no choice to but to put up ticket and other merchandising prices

gotta love the free market

Someone has to pay his $8 million salary.

darn it's pretty sad people go see hockey players and this jackass is making more then some of the top players in the league.

darn hockey has smart owners.

gary thinks everyone is stupid like him.  Oh yeah he's done a great job.......revenue is up........it went from 2.2 billion to 3 billion dollars in the last 5-6 years.  Now do you think this is from the success of the garbage teams he forced down our throats like the juggernaut Coyotes or Blue Jackets or Thrashers (RIP) or the Florida crickets or the facade Stars or the pretend Predators or do you think the increased revenue coincides with the recent rise of the Canadian dollar.  Im not asking, i'm informing you.  gary is a kunt, always has been and always will be.  He can rig this league all he wants, but he'll never fool me. The NHL has become a ponzi scheme, nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
