There really is no value in meeting as long as Bettman and Owners are not prepared to negotiate, but rather simply making take it or leave it offers to the NHLPA, as that is a one sided tactic with no potential resolution.

The NHL wants to be 50/50 partners and the NHLPA is willing to meet them there for financial prosperity for the league. But Bettman also wants not only an equal split, he wants to dictate through players contracting rights/restrictions how the NHLPA will split their 50% among themselves, which really is none of his business.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
