Bettman has everything to do with it. It's his third lockout, and everybody knew that Gary Bettman, Jeremy Jacobs, etc were planning another lockout.

It's only natural that the NHLPA would get someone good to do the job, as they were under threat.

The league could have just agreed to play this season under the old CBA. They could have also agreed to the players offer on day one, which made a generous concession of reducing player intake from 57% to 54%, equivalent to a whopping 114 million dollars a year in revenue. There was no need for Bettman to have his third work stoppage.
