I think the individual owners who offered large contracts could afford them(or think they could afford them at least). No owner is going to hand out money he can't spend.

The league as a whole (meaning Bettman and the owners involved in negotiations) think they are paying too much in salaries, plus they want to close loopholes for cap circumvention.

You can agree or disagree all you want but there's a difference between the individual owners and what the NHL as a whole thinks.

The owners can't have a conference call on July 1st and tell Leipold to not sign Suter and Parise. He is free to do what he wants.
