Assuming the facts of our hypothetical that the parties agreed, in writing, to make such a trade conditioned on the Predators' refusal to match the terms of the offer sheet, and then Philadelphia turned around and reneged, that Bettman would come down on them hard and put the trade through? Come on.
Again, it's moot, because the Flyers' organization wouldn't pull such a childish stunt. But the commissioner has a lot more power than you may believe.
