Rake...

I don't think all four expansion teams have done well, but that's not the point. Did the league need four new expansion teams, or did a team need to move from Miami; from Carolina; or from Anaheim?

And I do not know how Bettman's done a good job. The sport is down there insofar as popularity among what's consider sports. It's come down to sponsors supporting poker, bowling, and other 'events' or sports over hockey. I don't see how that's a good thing. As for saving the sport...contracting the four worse teams in terms of revenues the last several years may've been a place to start. The league would've survived with a different CBA too, by the way; he and the owners were lucky enough players likely couldn't afford to sit any longer.
