Point Gary.
Exactly.

This is basically just a potshot by Bettman. There's no risk involved from his side, and for all he knows it might cause a little more grumbling by players behind the scenes.

It's purely brinksmanship at this point. Negotiations aren't active, so there's not much else to do but score cheap points.
