Well that isn't really surprising.
Look at the way Bettman gets all squirmy every time the integrity of the league is questioned in regards to officiating. He won't answer a question directly when it is directed towards the possibility of the NHL playing favorites or having an agenda when it comes to throwing "on-ice bones" the way of teams that are in non-hockey markets and struggling. He just deflects and points to other issues or successes in other leagues. So now given the opportunity to censor a reporter he (and the league) is of course going to jump on it.
I'm not sure why though to be honest. Half the players that spout off in press end up saying something that makes them seem like spoiled kids who think they are entitled to their millions and don't give a damn about their working-class fans. It's been many of the press releases and moves by the PA that have soured me to the players this time around. Instead of negotiating and getting it done, they selfishly refuse to budge on their issues and try distraction ploys like the ones in Quebec and Alberta where they attempted to have the government over turn the lockout and declare it illegal. That's a good showing of solidarity there. Let's get 60 guys paid to sit around while 650(ish) are locked out.
