At one point, the writer says Lou Lamoriello and Bob Clarke "usurped" Bettman's authority regarding how the League should be promoted and publicized. He also made a point that all owners support Bettman even "the influential Ed Snider."

It is an interesting article.
Yeah, I seen that article. It is in the hockey section of the San Jose Mercury News. Registration required , but is free. Someone could post a link. I was most interested in the fact of the enormous increase in revenues under Bettman. Would think that Clarke and Lamoriello would have put the skids on some marketing innovations rather than jazzing them up.
