Kris Versteeg spoke with TSN 1050 (Toronto) on Monday and he had some harsh words for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly.

"You've got to cut out the cancers and I think when you look at Bill Daly and Bettman, they've been polluting this game for far too long," he said. Detroit defenseman Ian White also publicly criticized Bettman recently by calling him an "idiot." The commissioner isn't winning any popularity contests with the players, but it doesn't change the fact that the two sides will have to see eye-to-eye to reach an agreement on a new CBA.
