I agree

If you all remember Leafs owner Larry Tannebaum, along with Tie Domi and Mario Lemieux were mentioned as a group that got that "Save the Season", meeting going by its own little backdoor meetings .

So Domi has been involved from the start and considering that he is employed by Tannenbaum and the Leafs that he might just be used by Leafs Management as it spokesperson since Larry is under a gag order .. Tie's motivation could be a juicy new contract from the leafs for speaking out on the matter and this could be ownership driven and not player driven remarks.

As Tannebaum himself certainly does not care for Bettman or Goodenow at this point of time, as its costing him money not to play.

Bettman after all took on Tannenbaum at the BOG meeting, is trying to force replacement players on him, and make him revenue share against his wishes, while Goodenow is blocking him directly from continuing business.
