Bettman has in his contract a clause that requires 50% + 1 to pass a CBA that he approves, and requires a 75% super majority to pass a CBA he does not approve. In other words, Bettman, with the support of 8 owners, can block any CBA from ratification.
Thank-you sir. That's the kind of information I was looking for.
