He is splitting the players without ever actually needing the meeting to take place. This will hopefull show which players aren't fans of Fehr.
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.
