Ban Gary Bettman from hockey forever sign now

Gary Bettman has not done a good job as NHL commissioner and has not done a good job of it in quite a long time. It has come time for him to go the way of Bob Goodenow and step aside as the commissioner of the NHL and let someone who has at least some hockey knowledge take his place. The only thing that Mr. Bettman has successfully done in his reign as commissioner is successfully run successful hockey teams out of Canada. A prime example of this being the 1996 edition of the Colorado Avalanche, who defected to the United States from Quebec City in the previous summer, and proving to be the 1996 Stanley Cup Champions. Of course Bettman wont admit it, but as long as he is in command there will be no more NHL teams brought back to Canada, but instead he is quite content with having teams in Washington, Phoenix, and Carolina where getting more than 4,000 fans out to watch a game seems almost impossible. The Winnipeg Jets never did win a Stanley Cup, but they did play in front of a sold-out crowd night in and night out. The bottom line is that Canadians care much more about the game of hockey and no matter where a team is located in Canada, the local fans will support it.
Not only was Gary Bettman the main cause of the recent lockout, he was one of the main reasons it was extended for so long. Bettman drew up a ridiculous collective bargaining agreement in 1994, which turned out to be a short-term solution to a long-term problem, which in turn caused NHL player salaries to go through the roof, causing the rich to become richer.
The bottom line is that for the NHL to completely recover from the devastating lockout of 2004-2005, Gary Bettman must be run out of office. This is the only solution to bringing NHL teams back to Canada. We, the undersigned, plead with the NHL, the NHLPA and the NHL Board of Directors that Gary Bettman be banned from the game of hockey forever.
