The last lockout was creating parity in the league in establishing a salary cap and a control on spending.

Of the last two lockouts, both seems to be a decision made by the owners jointly, not Gary Bettman singularly.

Would a "Hockey Man" have chosen differently? Could another NHL commissioner avoided the lockouts? Imo, the lockouts is a symptom of a poor economic framework in the league, not a personal choice of the commissioner.
Who is responsible for the poor economic framework? Is this not the system he fought for and blew a whole season to get?
