If, Bettman wasn't a jackass they could have reached a 45 million dollar cap. He didn't want to negotiate on Tuesday he just put out the final offer. I find it funny when people call these players greedy and blame them when 24% of there salary was being cut, there was going to be a luxary tax and there was going to be a salary cap. The only POSITIVE thing the owners offered was offered monday and that was not linking salaries to revenues. Don't get me wrong Goodenow is a jackass to but when it comes down to it...I think the Union really wanted to save the season while the Bettman took a take it or leave it, no more negotiating, I don't give a **** attitude.

Add a stronger luxary tax and make the payroll at 45 million and I think the deal would've been done.
