Bettman gets paid millions to be the scapegoat for all the Canadian teams and all the old US teams. If there wasn't a commissioner, then people might start blaming the people who actually make the rules on and off the ice.
The last time they had a Canadian as the figurehead he was roundly hated in Canada for suspending Richard.
