Why would the owners want to get rid of Bettman? Why would you fire a guy that has made you a ton of money and given you everything that you want? Expansion fees, a player salary cap, previous to that there was the rookie cap, the US TV deal that he just brokered is massive for the league in the US.
Then why is there a lockout? Oh, because the owners are greedy and don't care if they annoy the suckers that follow their league?
