OMG: Bettman and Roy eat breakfast together

Patrick Roy

With about a billion reporters milling around the media hotel this morning in Pittsburgh, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman decided to sit down with Patrick Roy for the most important meal of the day.

This, of course, set off all kinds of gossip among the shorts-with-black-socks set. What were Bettman and Roy talking about? It had to be about the Coyotes moving to Quebec City, right? After all, the league owns the Phoenix franchise and it’s been rumored Roy could be a key figure with the team should it move to La Belle Province.

Yahoo!’s Nick Cotsonika ran into Bettman after and told him the tête-à-tête created quite a stir. The commissioner asked Cotsonika if people were speculating. Cotsonika replied, “Of course.” To which Bettman said, “Welcome to my life.”

    I bet…..no, I know that bettman gets off on this attention. Its as if he didnt get enough gossip drama attention in high school, so he’s using the league and the media to fill the void in his lonely soul from never having any friends. Yes Patrick, welcome to his life.
