The NHL owns the Coyotes, so I think that actually makes it 6 owners since Bettman likely controls that vote.
It's well known that Jeremy Jacobs is solidly on Bettman's side, so that would mean he would only need 7 more to guarantee he has the final word. Although the teams listed by "HockeyyDerpp" (as I've seen him called) might be big market powerful teams, they still would need a practically impossible majority to overrule Bettman.
Lest we also forget, all 30 owners voted in favor of a lockout...
