Perhaps you haven't read to leaks about the offers. Owners aren't just after 50-50 right now. Shorter contracts, less guaranteed money on Entry Level Contracts, less arbitration rights (and I believe only at the team's request), longer time/age to UFA, I haven't read one give from the owners accept of course the privilege to play in the NHL. Personally, I don't turn on the game to watch owners or GM's.

Owners are not offering one thing in compensation for all these reductions.

And Bettman makes it clear the offer isn't going to get any better. When you say this is the best offer, it is a take it or leave it.
