Fehr and Bettman both run dictatorships pretty much, Bettman can quash a deal with just eight of thirty votes iirc - and doesn't allow the owners to speak publicly during a lockout - while Fehr I don't believe 'ever' has to bring a deal to the players for ratification. What worries me about Fehr (among other things) is he probably got ironclad promises when the NHLPA begged him to take over that they wouldn't overthrow him and his brother the way they sacked any number of union heads in the past.
