This is more than likely the truth but what fun is that. There is actually a bit of shadiness surrounding Bettman and his dealings with owners and struggling franchises. The Nashville and Minnesota sale were a bit dubious and a couple NHL owners have gone to jail for illegal business practices, or at least brought charges against. At the top of any billion dollar entity, there is an environment outside the publics eye ripe for nefarious back room deals, whether that be in sports leagues, corporations, or governments. The only people who get screwed out of fixing a lottery are the fans of other teams, and the league showed how much it cares for the fans in general this past year.
