My point was if fehr suggested two weeks off, hed be looked at critically and poorly in this area, but bettman does it, and its great.

I dont like either bettman or fehr personally.
It's a negotiating tactic and the side with more leverage is the side that will likely use such a tactic. The PA isn't in the position to use that kind of slant and if they did (and even if they agree to it), it flies in the face of much of what they've preached throughout this process. I'm sure Fehr knows the tactic the league is trying to pull and he'll probably explain to the players quite well. Even if it only serves to unite the PA even more, it still spells doom for them. No matter how you look at this, things have escalated too far for either side to 'win' at this point.
