Gary Bettman's Biggest Flaw Gets Exposed By NHL Analyst!

GARY BETTMAN'S BIGGEST FLAW GETS EXPOSED BY NHL ANALYST!

BY S. HARPER
When it comes to the NHL many fans are wondering why there isn't nearly the same level of trades that there use to be? With 32 teams in the NHL now and with all the new blood coming into the league, it's not because teams don't want to but more-so that they can't due to cap space issues.

Hockey Insider Eric Macramalla would share some stats to why trades aren't happening and what issues teams are currently facing.

1) 12 NHL Teams have no cap space
2) 17 Teams have players on LTIR
3) 27 Teams have less then $3M in cap space
4) Many teams want to make trades but can't because of no cap space
5) Player movement is great for the game and generates interest

Time for more flexible approach to the cap. - Brain Macramalla



I think a have to agree with Macramalla, the NHL needs to work out a way to improve this so team's aren't so handcuffed to the cap but keep it fair enough still so all 32 team's have a even playing field.
