People are talking about this owner vs. player part of the CBA, but from what I gather there is going to be some owner vs. owner.
This would be the precise reason as to why a lot of people question Gary Bettman. He has attempted to build and create hockey markets across the USA where hockey isnt even a part of the culture. There are plenty of markets across Canada that would make more sense.

Gary Bettman has forced his own hand. He has to create the CBA to both benefit the large and small markets. He has to find common ground between the Upper, Middle, and Lower Class teams (metaphorically speaking). As history has shown, this is not a very easy task.
