Actually, you may. After 2004, it might have been best if Bettman had stepped down and just clear the air. The 2004 lockout was bitter but this one is even worse and that is probably in direct relation to the 2004 lockout. Removing Bettman is a positive step in the eyes of the PA, a good will gesture that it's time to get fresher blood, a different view point and maybe someone the PA would work with.
The OWNERS vote it in, because their is NO AGREEMENT in place between the owners and PLAYERS... a lockout is in place because there's no agreement, plain and simple.
Uh, I thought Bettman represented the owners? And helped shape the agreement between the owners and the players?
