His strategy completely failed and has left the players insulted and unwilling to work with him, and not even a mediator could help them. I'd be pissed, too.

I'm no teedubya when it comes to conspiracy theories, and this is 5 years old, but it's still my all-time favorite article on Bettman, just to give you a little more insight...

This is Bettman's NHL. Fourteen years, four bankruptcies, three franchise moves, two lockouts, one lost season and no effective leadership. The business is so sick that the Pittsburgh Penguins, despite a loyal fan base and the most promising talent since Gretzky, are 50-50 to move to that noted hockey hotbed of Kansas City.
