The articles by Friedman and Lebrun yesterday paint a gloomy picture. They also portray Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs in a bad light.

If this does go into December, many of them won't be happy with either the commissioner or Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, who is another huge obstacle.

Meanwhile, bloodthirsty owners like Jeremy Jacobs want their pound of flesh right off the top from the players, so 53 percent (down from the current 57 percent) would not be even close to what his group would agree to in Year 1.
For once, wouldn’t it be refreshing to see some of those moderate owners who don’t see the world the same way a hawk like Jacobs does stand up and espouse compromise? Where is their voice in all this?

There was also a post about Jacobs by a Bruins fan on reddit yesterday

I am curious to know more about Jacobs, his role in the last lockout and his association with Dollar Bill Wirtz? All I know so far is the unusual bets that have been mentioned in a Jacobs' thread on bruins board and that Jacobs' company operates the concession stands at United Center.
