Hockey needed someone crazy and hard-headed to brake the NHLPA. Bettman was never the guy who signed mega contracts with the NHLPA's stars. He was "defenseless" to the franchises over-paying the players.

In my point of view, he did what he had to do with the lockout and all the blame should be on the NHLPA for the season missed. They never wanted to negotiate and they paid for it.
