This is all the owners, as evidenced by their completely absurd, bad-faith initial offer. They got pretty much everything they wanted in the last round of CBA negotiations and now they want more concessions.
Bad faith offer? You know how negotiations work. Aim high, settle somewhere in between.

If you can't see that the system is failing still, then I don't know what to tell you man. I have always looked at the last CBA as a stepping stone to where the owners wanted to go all along. They had to get the salary cap in place first. That was huge. Now they can set out to further right the ship financially so all teams can compete fairly.


PS - never said it was Fehr's "fault", but to suggest he's not playing a HUGE role in this work stoppage is naive at best, moronic at worst.
