NHL: Eight Biggest Foot-in-Mouth Moments from Commissioner Gary Bettman's Reign
Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

OK, let's face it, with the NHL's lockout of the players in full force and now in its second month, commissioner Gary Bettman is not the most popular person among hockey fans these days.

While I don't completely blame the commissioner for everything that's going on (he does answer to the owners after all), we will now take a look at some of Gary Bettman's biggest "foot-in-mouth" quotes during his reign as commissioner. Most of these refer to the most recent CBA, since that is what the league is fighting about now.

Please feel free to add some of your own if you can think of any. I'm sure there are plenty of Bettman quotes or moments that fans have "fond" memories of ever since he took over as commissioner back on February 1, 1993.
