Neither side knows just how serious / adamant the other side is, and how far they'll go. It's like poker. Both Bettman and Fehr are trying to get a read on when the other side has become motivated enough to offer their best deal. This "moratorium" offer is probably Bettman's way of telling the NHLPA that the owners are not that desperate to get things going, and he is hoping to see if the players are starting to feel the pressure to make a deal. The unfortunate thing is that neither side will agree to a deal until they feel that they've pushed the other side as far out of their comfort zone as possible.
