What is needed is a full and complete offer from the PA. Two partial offers don;t make a full offer. The PA should take Bettman's best offer and counter with their "best offer" and then meet in the middle for the actual best offer.

To this point there has been no back and forth. There has been the PA waiting for the NHL offer and then ignoring it and slightly tweaking their last offer. Time to put both Best Offers on the table and get to negotiating.
Owners should take the players offer and counter with one based on that offer. When you go to a meeting get a players offer and then hand out your own offer in the same meeting you aren't even considering the players offer.

How do you write up a counter offer in advance without ever seeing the offer you are supposedly countering?

You don't.
