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.
Not because Bettman's a dick that it makes it okay for the other side to be one as well.

Bettman is a twit. Always has been. Still don't understand how he's still the commissioner. That being said, Fehr is no better.
