If that was the case, the owners are flat out wrong in this scenario.

I'd really like for a reporter to ask Bettman the direct question and get it confirmed on the record that they turned down a specific request to discuss the make-whole.

(BTW, if the players wanted to discuss the make-whole, but refused to say so, then they're idiots for not simply admitting to it.)
