Pure speculation: it seems like this meeting happened really quickly after everyone found out the owners had budged on Make Whole three days before the Winter Classic was cancelled, yet the offer was kept under Fehr's hat until after the fact of cancellation. Perhaps that was enough to break a significant number of players' confidence in his ability to recoup their losses by continuing to draw out the process.
Could be, because alot of people were asking what exactly is he doing....besides stalling and now with winter classic gone that's one of his leverage points. I still think he will stall until 11th hr before the season get's cancelled anything else just wouldn't be Fehr.
