As soon as Gary Bettman stepped to microphone you knew it was bad news. Almost always he keeps his cool in public. This time he was seething.
Well played by Bettman. I can't believe Fehr fell for this. Most of the public viewed the NHL's previous offer as, if nothing else, reasonable. Preliminary reports are saying that Fehr ignored it and just tweaked his original offer.
Result is that public opinion is now overwhelmingly anti-Union. I guess Fehr anticipated this (hence the multiple offers), but it didn't work.
And if Bettman's (controlled) anger indicated by the above tweet means anything, I would guess that the tweak's were not nearly enough. Seems to be in the opposite direction.
