Here lies the problem. There should be a rep for the Owners, similar to Fehr and Goodenow for the players. Goodenow used to refer to Bettman as the "Owners commissioner".
There should be an arbitrator type for the NHL who oversees the betterment and the decency of the league as a whole.
Not that I believe that will happen, but, I do believe Bettman will be done within the next season or two. I hope he sticks it out to hand out the cup to see how the fans react to him.
