Betman is a disgrace to the entire hockey community, and has seriously harmed the NHL's image outside of North America. Is he the only one who doesnt realize how idiodic his stance is? Arturs Irbe should have played last night. The Slovaks should of had all their players available, just as Canada and the US will. It's hard to see how his opinion on this can be because of anything other than racism. He has no warranted opinion or valid point. and must resign NOW !!!
