Anaheim Ducks veteran scorer Teemu Selanne has cast his venom on NHL commissioner Gary Bettman regarding the current owners lockout of the players. Selanne's untranslated comments first appeared on his Finnish blog Salama.

Selanne comes out firing calling Bettman the NHL's "most hated person," and blaming him for the league's labor conflicts.

Selanne wonders if Bettman would be willing to give up his $8 million salary for a year. Bettman and NHLPA director Donald Fehr have said they will not draw their salaries during the lockout.
