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.
Ya! You do actually turn on a game to watch the owners or GM's. You don;t turn on a game to watch Sidney Crosby or Ovechkin shoot pucks at an empty net. You tune into to watch the team supported by the owner and assembled by the GM. They created the product you watch. Not the players! You don't eat Sodium Caseinate, you eat Dorito's!
