Bettman talked to Reuters, and had some interesting things to say. Excerpts:

"NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman dropped a hint of the league's plans in a recent interview with Reuters when he said: "We will be in (China) on a regular basis before the (2022) Olympics in Beijing."

The NHL's arrival in China looks set for this September with the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks reportedly penciled in to play two preseason games."

And they renewed this guy's term of commissioner for what, eight more years, with an increase of salary?  Are you kidding me?  The NHL in China?  He's lost his mind.  If they wanted to do something exotic for preseason games, having one in Russia or Sweden or even Finland would have been cool.  China?  How many NHL players are from China again?  Do they even know what ice is there?
