Bettman's statement on Pollin

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman released the following statement regarding the passing away of former Washington Capitals owner and D.C. sports figure Abe Pollin:

"Abe Pollin always wanted the best for his teams, for the fans and for Washington -- and all of those passions combined to create the arena that revitalized the entire downtown community. He was a man of commitment and principle and we all will miss him. The National Hockey League family sends sincere condolences to his loved ones."

A eulogy by Bettman is like having Jesse Ventura read poetry at the Annual American Crochet Society meeting.
