That is exactly why Bettman should be canned. His expansion plans have been light to moderate failures, even as other franchises (read: Islanders) are weak.
I'd love to see internal documents the the revenue growth he projected (sold to the owners) when they expanded. With two lockouts in the last decade, they have to be way behind.
