Red Wings Defensemen Ian White Calls NHL Commissioner An Idiot
Detroit Red Wings defenseman Ian White had some harsh words for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.
"I gotta be honest: I personally think he's an idiot," White told USA Today on Friday. "Since he's come in, I think he's done nothing but damage the game."
White's comments come in regards to the league enduring a lockout for the third time during Bettman's tenure, which began in February 1993. The last lockout forced the cancellation of the entire 2004-05 season.
With the league and players unable to come to an agreement since the latest lockout went into effect Sept. 16, multiple sources told ESPN that Bettman suggested to NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr on Wednesday that the two sides take a two-week moratorium from negotiations.
