It is coming from the leaders of the PA and from the league, agreed. I tend to agree with Fehr though. The personal animosity all starts with the league's attitude towards the union. Everything else is simply reaction to that.
And, surprise surprise, I dont agree with Fehr. Fehr is representing a constituency that has to go through this type of thing 2, maybe 3, times during their career. The rest of the time, they play hockey and collect a paycheck. So, its understandable that the rare times that they're somewhat tied to a negotiation, they'll lash out at management. The owners/businessmen go through this sort of thing on a daily basis, they're used to it. If they made every negotiation personal, they wouldnt be running a business for very long.

Fehr is just adding fuel to the fire by going on radio and talking about a lack of respect. What good does that do? It just stokes the flames.
