You can cringe all you want - and I’m cringing - but Gary Bettman belongs in the Hockey Hall of Fame. What he’s done for the business of the game is gigantic.— steve simmons (@simmonssteve) June 26, 2018
I question the @HockeyHallFame and the sport itself for the decision to celebrate Gary Bettman. I would like for the @HockeyHallFame to return all personal items donated from my hockey career. This is not something I want to be a part of. #nhl #nhlpa @CarBombBoom13 @NHL #ohl— NICK BOYNTON (@NICKBOYNTON24) June 26, 2018

I want to thank @NHLCanes for the past 5 seasons. Thanks to the Staff, the fans, my teammates and the whole organization. You guys have been awesome. Can't thank you guys enough.— Elias Lindholm (@lindholmelias) June 26, 2018
With that being said I'm very excited for this new chapter with @NHLFlames
