So what if there's bad blood. The NFL and NBA were nasty lockouts. They got deals done. I like Mike Russo but he is the owners prime leaker. That's the NHL spin. When the NHL said Fehr was not disclosing the offers to the players,they used Russo to get the info out. The PA says they are close while the NHL says they are not. Even LeBrun noted all of his owners sources are now pessimistic. Management is trying to get a little more from the players. Wait a few weeks and they hope to extract more gains from the players. Garrioch quoted a NHL insider who said Bettman doesn't have more to give. ESPN quoted a basketball owner at the same time last year who said the players had already received their best offer. A week or so later the NBA backed off on their demands and a deal was made. Its up to the NHL.
