Prevent the next NHL lockout in 2012 or remove Gary Bettman as Commissioner

NHL fans are some of the most passionate sports fans around, yet we have suffered through two lockouts that have shortened one season and cancelled another.  We are in the midst of the third lockout in 18 years as owners and players squabble over a new collective bargaining agreement.  Yet as the true stakeholders of the league, the fans have absolutely no say in what happens in the league.  Both lockouts just happen to fall under the tenure of Commissioner Gary Bettman.  While the greed by the owners and players have contributed to this dysfunction within the league, it is the lack of leadership shown by Commissioner Bettman that has ultimately resulted in both lockouts occurring.  Now, if an agreement is not reached by September 15, the fans will suffer once again.
