That agreement is over. If the owners are being truthful about wanting a FAIR deal, then they wull have to negotiate for it.

Telling someone, take it or leave it is not a fair negotiation when both sides bring something equally valuable to the table.

Unless you think you can do what the NHLPA does, as well for less?

Didn't think so.
I remember right before the lockout Bettman said because the NHL and owners agreed to the terms of the previous CBA, (one which he thought was a win for them at the time) he said they need a new one because there are things he didn't end up liking about it. So I agree with you that it seems like Bettman wants to get everything for the owners and make sure the players don't get anything out of it.
