While the Edmonton Oilers and Connor McDavid surprised everyone by defeating the Dallas Stars, Gary Bettman's reaction is stirring up talk today.

We now know the two finalists for the 2024 Stanley Cup, with McDavid's team set to face the impressive Florida Panthers.
Most analysts expected a final between the Dallas Stars and the Panthers.
But the Oilers turned things around and will ensure a Canadian presence in the final. (The first since the Montreal Canadiens in 2021)
They will now attempt to become the first Canadian team since the Montreal Canadiens in 1993 to lift the precious trophy.

Gary Bettman's Reaction is Stirring Up Talk

This morning, many observers and analysts believe that Commissioner Bettman is disappointed with the turn of events.
«A rumor has been circulating for a long time that the NHL Commissioner is not particularly a fan of Canadian markets. This could potentially explain why he is so reluctant to bring back the Quebec Nordiques, but that's another story.» - Keven Mawn

In short, many experts think Bettman would have really loved a final between the Florida Panthers and the Dallas Stars, two markets in the southern United States, but it's up to you to judge.
«I am pretty shocked. I never thought I'd be as disappointed as Gary Bettman about a Stanley Cup Final matchup. It's a bit unreal. At least it will make for good television for the last week of JiC's season!

See you tomorrow at 5 PM.» - Jean-Charles Lajoie, who, like Gary Bettman, is very disappointed with the 2024 Stanley Cup Final matchup

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, between the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers, will take place on Saturday. (June 8, live from Sunrise)
