Being willing to lose games and willing to lose games are two different things. Maybe that isn't intent, but it is a damning implication to accuse a side of wanting to miss games.

I know it's Bettman's playbook to negotiate this way. I take issue with him acting like a brat when someone does it to him. He fashions himself as a hockey world wide representative. He represents 4 owners.

Important questions: Who appoints the negotiating committee? Does this committee have to present all offers to the owners, or do they get to yay/nay deals that get passed on?
