Just to follow up, from what I can tell the most "active" owners when it comes these negotiations are:

Jeremy Jacobs:
Signed Lucic, Seguin, Marchand and Krejci this summer, despite the fact that only Krejci was a free agent, either UFA or RFA - he signed these guys a year early in other words, knowing that a new CBA was going to be negotiated and he was going to ask them for a rollback

Craig Leipold:
Signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to the exact type of deals they now want to eliminate

Ted Leonis:
Signed Alex Ovechkin and Niklas Backstrom to the exact type of deals they now want to eliminate

Murray Edwards:
Seems to have his hands "clean", though the Dennis Wideman deal certainly doesn't look good

So of the four owners who seem to attend the most meetings (it's hard to find exact information on this) three of them are, in fact "the owners who cheat the system" and who are now "asking for a roll back".
