Jim Balsillie has struck out three times, trying to get another NHL team for Canada, and now he is up to bat again.

It's Jim "BlackBerry" Balsilllie versus Gary "The Count" Bettman on the mound.

Strike One: Balsillie tried to buy the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Strike Two: Balsillie tried to buy the Nashville Predators.

Strike Three: Balsillie talked to Buffalo about buying the Sabres.

Now he's up to bat again. This time he's butting heads with NHL Commissioner Bettman over the Phoenix Coyotes.

It's Balsillie 0 and Bettman 3, but the BlackBerry billionaire is loaded and the NHL Board of Governors has players stranded in at least three franchises in baseball territory.
