If there's any truth, it's that some of the owners and some of the players are putting pressure on their respective representitives in these negotiations.

One expects this to be the case as you get closer and closer to a deal. I think the only thing that potentially skews the NHL's approval is that only 8 team votes can still nix any proposal-- along with Bettman. Catering to the outliers may not be the best way to get quick resolution.
