All this media posturing and talking is completely pointless. It serves no purpose in trying to get a deal done.

Telling Bettman to go **** himself accomplishes nothing. It's not like saying it will cause the owners/players to suddenly cave into completing a deal.
If enough big market owners feel like Dolan does (he made his feelings clear enough) that absolutely could force things to happen.

The league is driven by (always has been) by its big market clubs.

Why does Dolan care about the CBA? All he wants is butts in the seats and games on the ice. He will be raking in money no matter what. But he loses a ton if the Rangers don't play. He cares about player salaries?

If enough big market owners express this fact, it could help.

Childish? When is it childish to stand up for what you believe in? How else are things going to get done. Apparently what ever is happening isn't enough.
