I think it's obvious Bettman's going to test if the players are going to risk a lockout to get the best deal, or if they'll take the best deal possible to play this season. I'm not seeing why the players would do the former. Crosby and other well paid vets who are pissed about the last lockout will never get their salaries back from a lockout. No matter what the owners give them.
Fehr could give two left balls about the game. It's Bettman's job to protect the integrity of the game and have enough common sense to know they have to talk this out. Even suggesting a two week break is utter nonsense.

Smith and Goodell had volcanic eruptions with each other on a number of occasions when they were negotiating the NFLs new CBA, but they were smart enough to have an independent mediator and they kept getting back in the room until they had a CBA agreed to.
