I think the Bettman era is over... if the game needs to be rebuilt from a fan/sponsor standpoint then you can't seriously do that with the same guy running the ship who has directed it onto the rocks. New leadership, new vision, new direction is needed and getting rid of Bettman would be a significant if not symbolic move towards that end.
