IMO the vast majority of the owners don't "like" long-term contracts ( ie: 15 year ) and the owners that do "like" them only do so because they saw it as a way to circumvent the salary cap.
The cap was put in for a reason and the majority of the teams play by the rules. It's the teams like Vancouver that introduced the loophole and screwed it for everyone else, so as a result Bettman wants to put in rules to stop teams from using this loophole.
