What Gary Bettman said about Joel Quenneville

Gary Bettman was on the Bob McCown podcast today and was asked about Joel Quenneville, and Stan Bowman, and said:

  • What is the process for Bowman and Quenneville to work in the NHL again, “at the appropriate time there will need to be some discussion about where things have been and where things are and whether or not it’s appropriate to return, but that is not something I’m comfortable getting into right now.”
  • Would that be a discussion with you, them and the specific team, “there are no operative teams because they are not eligible to engage with a team right now.”
  • So they can’t negotiate, “no.”
  • If I was the President of Comcast I couldn’t phone Joel and ask him to come in for an interview, “no.”
