    He's still not making as much as Vince Mcmahon. He needs to work harder on his villain sneer.

    Pretty nice chunk of change. Definitely doesn't help his perception among fans that a guy we all hate so much is making so much money.

    Crazy the amount of dough the commissioners of the Big 4 pull in.
    Bettman (NHL) 2012-2013: 8.8M
    Goodell (NFL) 2012: 44.9 M (chunk of this was supposedly deferred bonuses etc from the year before)
    Bud Selig (MLB): Reportedly between 22-30M
    David Stern (former NBA): Was reportedly pulling around 20M a season.
    DHL1
    23 man main roster/25 man prospect roster
    G,A,+/-,PIM,PPP,SHP,GWG,SOG,HIT,BKS --- W,GAA,Sv,Sv%,SHO

    I don't get this at all. Why in the world do you need to pay those ridiculous sums of money to someone to do that job? Isn't it much like the presidency in many ways? The money isn't the attraction with the position, it's the power no?

    Any House of Cards fans on here? Remember what Frank Underwood says on the difference between the two?

    Such a waste of talent. He chose money over power. In this town, a mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn't see the difference.

    It is what it is. Top CEOs, guys in the public spotlight like this etc, all get paid stupid big dollars. It's the way the world works.

    I wonder if his salary is the same every year or if it is frontloaded/backloaded. Gotta check out the details to look for cap circumvention violations...

    Exactly. It's essentially the owners saying "you made us millions of dollars, thanks bud!"

    I know I'll be the line voice of dissent here, but he's earned it.

    Growth of league revenues from $400M when he started, to $30 Billion dollars.

    We may all hate him, but the NHL likely wouldn't be as successful without him.
    15 Team Full Keeper. Total points. Protection List (Expansion) In Bold, Minor League (Protected) in Bold Italics.

    Start 11 F, 3 D, 1 G

    3 Points: SHO, 2 Points: G, PPA, SHG, SHA, W, 1 Point: A, PPG, GWG, .25 Points: BLK, .1 Points: FOW, SOG, SV, .15 Points: HIT, -.05 Points: FOL, -.15 Points: GA

    Forwards: Backstrom, Benn, Bozak, Burakovsky, Franzen, Giroux, Hossa, Kessel, Krejci, MacKinnon, Marchessault, J. T. Miller, Perron, Plotnikov, Spooner, Tarasenko, J. Thornton, Toews

    Defense: DeAngelo, Goligoski, Krug, Shattenkirk, Stone, Streit,

    Goal: Lundquist, Schneider



    2014-15 MHL Champions!

    I agree with this. Look what he's done for the league since he took over. It's making a whack of money for the owners, which is his job.
    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Malkin, Ovechkin, Kessel, Pavelski, Little, Benn, Iginla, Foligno, Kesler, Viraten
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, Shattenkirk, Yandle, Streit, Gostisbehere
    Goalies: Price, Fleury

    How do we know the league wouldn't be better off with a different person at the helm? We'll never know. I'll never buy that any of these guys, whether they be athletes or CEOs, ever "earn" that kind of money. I don't begrudge them making it since that's just the reality of our world, but the idea that any single person can earn millions/billions, is difficult for me to believe.
