I watch the game no matter what but he hasn't done a good job.

I would say based on the fact that hockey has not raised it's level of what I would call "national presence" is a good indicator that Bettman has been doing a bad job. Sure we won't out-do Basketball, Baseball, or Football but surely we can still beat out Nascar, Golf, Tennis, and Poker. Poker! The lockout debacle (two of them) is a black eye on his record. Supposedly redoing the CBA only to have owners and GMs go right back and abuse and inflate the system. Even worse, the supposedly small market teams are doing a lot of the damage themselves. I like some of the rule changes but Bettman can't even take credit for most of those. Shanahan and his committee should be getting the bulk of that praise.
