I try to shy away from conspiracy stuff, but I can't ignore the possibility that Fehr was brought in to drive Bettman out. That's the counterpoint to the other "future player" scenario I put together; it all also makes sense if they're just trying to get the owners to fire Bettman out of disgust.

I don't think that's going to work. Bettman has been complete **** for labor relations, but he has done an excellent job growing the TV market for a niche sport and bringing in money to a lot of franchises. On the other hand, the PA has been through a lot of if the PA is gunning for Bettman's dismissal, it's probable the owners will just wait for the players to revolt and fire Fehr.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
