Ken Klee on Toronto Radio

Klee is a veteran Dman for the Leafs. He said he cannot understand why the tail is wagging the dog. Bettman's goal is to get the big market teams in the frame of mind as those of the small market teams. He feels with luxury tax and rollback the NHL would be just fine. Gary's idea is ruining teams like Toronto, Philly, Avs, Wings, etc. Fan loyalty is great in those cities and would be damaged with Bettman's way. Fans pay a premium to support their teams and feels if thing go the NHL, any child could run the league.
No truth that weaker teams cannot compete with larger teams. Look at Tampa and Calgary; proof those teams can compete.
