‘Yes,’ Gary Bettman will hand out the Stanley Cup this year

Originally posted on ProHockeyTalk:

Despite the fan acrimony that was caused by the lockout, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman — who wasn’t exactly the most popular figure among fans before the league’s most recent work stoppage — will once again walk out on a red carpet this June to hand out the Stanley Cup to either the Chicago Blackhawks or Boston Bruins.

“Yes,” said Bettman today in Chicago when asked whether it would be business as usual this year.

And that’s all he said in response that question.

He was, however, extremely complimentary of NHL fans for the passion and dedication they showed in returning to rinks, as well as watching on TV, during the shortened regular season and playoffs.

He’s still going to get booed, isn’t he.
