Say what you want about Bettman, but at least he cares more about hockey than Fehr does.
Kinda like what the owners are doing right now? When the players use their leverage they are "greedy" and "don't care about ze precious fans" but when the owners do it they are such brilliant negotiators and well within their rights.

Bettman represents owners who have made billions in fields unrelated to hockey while Fehr represents players who solely need the NHL in order to not take a massive pay reduction. Which one has more vested in the NHL exactly?
