Since 1993, Gary Bettman has been the commissioner of the National Hockey League and he has taken the game to new and incredible heights. But despite his many positive accomplishments for the game, when he makes a public appearance, he is mercilessly booed.

Heckling and booing this man has almost become a part of the hockey culture. And there’s no love lost on the players’ side either. After three lockouts in his 20 years behind the desk, he has given them a good reason to despise him and what he represents.

This book sets out to discover why Gary Bettman has become the most hated man in hockey. Is that hate justified? Or is he just a scapegoat for fan frustration and player dissatisfaction?
