There is no requirement for Mr. Fehr to counter Mr. Bettman's offer, and he shouldn't be villainized for failing to do so; however, no deal will be struck until the PA realizes that this is the only way to continue making a living in the National Hockey League.
And that for me is the problem. Bettman acts as if this is a dictatorship. It's no wonder the players aren't lining up to kiss his a$$.
