Both sides have come in from their original stance, considerably.

And, IMO, Lupul 100% right calling out Bettman for his supposed 2 week hiatus. There is a lot of smaller jobs in business that are being affected much more then the players.
Except that the break suggested by Bettman was completely mischaracterized and players and their media supporters wasted no time jumping on ship to make stupid comments about it as though the comment came out of the blue. It was simply a rebuttal to something Fehr said. If the league truly didn't want to meet for two weeks, what would prevent them from simply refusing to come to the table for the next two weeks, moratorium or not? After all of this is done, these players and owners will all still be around, along with Bettman. I understand the players are frustrated but from time to time, they should allow common sense to prevail rather than allowing their emotions to mischaracterize situations just to get a good dig in.
