Mike Portnoy is a very famous and influential drummer. As you read in the quote from his facebook, he'd been working with DT for over twenty years, which is a long time for bands nowadays. He's also the leader and song-writer, so if he leaves, that's taking an amazing chunk of the band's spirit and idea with him and away from fans.

No Portnoy practically means no Dream Theater, at least to the fanbase.
