While the players believe Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs is calling the shots, an educated guess at the final group includes but may not be limited to Anaheim, Columbus, Florida, the Islanders, Phoenix, St. Louis, Washington and Dallas -- enough to block any agreement from getting done (It's tough to lock it down because owners are forbidden to discuss this stuff. Attempts to talk to a couple were politely shot down).
Last week I would have said the Islanders are undoubtedly involved, but since the announcement of the Brooklyn move, I think Wang has likely backed off his demands.

But Jacobs, is there a cheaper owner in the league?

The other teams, as the guys from PPP said, you could contract all of those teams and the NHL wouldn't be that worse off. If these are the guys holding things up, can you imagine how they will be treated during owners meetings?
