Bettman lost the faith of the sponsors, and he may have also lost the loyalty of several of the owners.
Stern's right hand man is taking over, already decided.

Let Bettman just take his millions and slip away into some 5th avenue coffee bar. I think John Collins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Co...s_executive%29) should be the guy in my mind. He spearheaded the Winter Classic, the new NBC sports deal etc. He's passionate, connected, VERY well respected and is media and technology savvy.

Bring him in and by the end of this new CBA the NHL will have taken over the NBA in popularity.
