Bettman has been doing this from day 1.

Everyone screams about the PA not willing to discuss the economic stuff. That is because Bettman puts conditions on that too. The PA has to accept the NHL's position for discussions on HRR to take place.

This is Fehr'r fault?

Fehr negotiated two CBAs in MLB without missing an inning. 2002 and 2006.

Bettman is 3 for 3 in lockouts.
The only place to fault fehr here is that none of the proposals included a version of the make whole that worked for them. Nhlpa should have countered with a version that worked for them and forced bettman to reject it, then you have the pr ammo that it was an empty gesture by the league
