NHL defenseman calls Bettman an "idiot"
Defenseman Ian White of the Red Wings is not a Gary Bettman fan. White went so far as to say that the NHL commissioner is an "idiot".
White made the remark after being asked about Bettman's suggestion that the NHL and the NHLPA take a two-week break from negotiations.
White was quoted as saying, "I personally think he's an idiot. Since he's come in, he's done nothing but damaged the game. The moves he's made, teams that are struggling seem to be ones he put in places where there's not viable markets for hockey."
The NHL has already cancelled games through December 1st.
