Throughout his three-decade tenure as NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman's relationship with the NHLPA has been a rollercoaster ride, marked by three lockouts and a series of TV deals that have left both wins and disappointments in their wake.

The most recent hurdle for the NHL came in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic, which ravaged the league's finances from 2020 to 2022. As a result, a reduced salary cap of $1,000,000 per year has posed significant challenges for teams in terms of cap compliance, forcing them to make creative moves to facilitate trades.
In an intriguing interview with SiriusXM NHL, Bettman revealed his plans to engage in discussions with the NHLPA regarding the long-awaited return of both the World Cup and Winter Olympics in 2026.

The resumption of NHL participation in the Olympics is eagerly anticipated, as it would allow players from NHL organizations to once again compete on the grandest international stage. However, the potential overlap between the Olympics and the NHL season presents significant logistical challenges for teams to navigate.

As Bettman broaches these discussions with the NHLPA, the outcome could play a pivotal role in shaping his legacy as Commissioner. Restoring the NHL's presence in the World Cup and Olympics would not only bring excitement to fans but also provide an opportunity for Bettman to mend his reputation and leave a lasting positive impact on the league.
