But you're acting as if the owners never even give any input before a proposal is drafted. For the most part NHL owners are shrewd businessmen. Do you truly believe they are all comfortable with allowing the commissioner, a commissioner who has been at the helm for two lockouts no less, simply getting his own staff together to draft a proposal without giving any input at all? Do you honesty think they just sit around waiting to get a fax from Bettman with a proposal, and just hope that he includes the things they are wishing for? That sounds less like a sports league commissioner's job, and more like a job for Santa Claus.
