---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do? In short, a league commissioner is the action man for the Board of Governors. They tell him what they want done and he works to make it happen through his subordinates while making sure that individual franchises play by the rules. ******** Translated if you haven't won the Stanley Cup in 40 years your NHL team is becoming irrelevant in a sports mad city long behind MLB, NFL and NBA teams, you just tell the commissioner(who you gave a new contract at 7 plus million per) to make it happen and the rules are bent sufficiently to action the command.

    Price should also be under consideration for the Hart as well! He's the MVP 99% of the nights he plays! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    Sr Boone MT is responsible for the fatigue and overuse of Markov MT is responsible for overuse of his pal Bouillon MT is responsible for putting his players in untenable situations by his "system" MT is responsible for a chip and chase system wearing down his small forwards over time MT did choose assistants who appear clueless in solving PP and Defense issues MT is responsible for game management gaffs occurring too frequently game in and out! MT is responsible for creating and instituting systems which compliment the players he has been given or has personally chosen! MT has to share responsibility for Bergevin's questionable signings and extensions! MT as headcoach is responsible for managing the players and his chosen coaches in all aspects! MT ISN'T DOING ANYTHING WELL AT THE MOMENT AND HASN'T FOR QUITE AWHILE! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    Look for Buttman to exert more control over how the NHL is portrayed by its biggest broadcast partner! A la NFL! Buttman a classic short-man syndrome will get even with all who cross him! Smarmy MacLean's constant baiting of Buttman has consequences! As the man in charge of editorial content on HNIC MacLean has a billboard sized bulls-eye on his back! Good riddance to Stock Cole Galley Healey and the rest of the HNIC talking buffoons! Cherry will be permitted to rot on the vine with no straight-man and a tight reign over what he says! He'll retire and do Rock-em Sock-em infomercials reminiscing about the good old days of goon hockey! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    Not only watch the Habs play but have seen enough of Boullion play his crony card with MT ! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    Remember the guy who got traded away was becoming an injury prone locker room toxin who was making 200% what Bourque was being paid! If DD deserves all the slack and kick starts for one career season certainly Bourque deserves the same for at least 4 comparable seasons. BTW in comparison 2013-2014: DD 1A for 3.5 mill Bourque 5G 1 A for 3.2 mill. DD given always the best available line mates in all the kick start efforts while Bourque has gotten the underperforming center! Just a little perspective. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    Or Bouillon! MT's best bud! The outpouring for a guy who maybe has played one good game in 18 months is overdone Mother Teresa he isn't. How many kick-starts, 55th chances or reprieves does he deserve? How many one-trick ponies have hung on this long? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?
