In a word yes. He should remove the owner, lock the roster with players _in_, and drop him from the playoffs. Those that play him from now on SHOULD NOT get a free win.
Locking him out with his players on the bench will give unfair advantage to those who have to play him the rest of the way, which is bogus unless he retro-actively goes back and awards everyone who played him a win.
