It's in the bylaws of the NHL--the only way they can get rid of it is to have a majority of owners (or perhaps even more than a simple majority--the bylaws may be written in such a way that 2/3 of the teams would have to vote in favor changing it) vote that way. Until then, individual owners have ceded certain things to the NHL; among the things they have agreed to is that only Bettman and Daly can speak publically for them.
