The fact is, the players can attend, hear from the owners, partake in the discussion and ask any question they want.
It's not a matter of you can attend to listen, but don't speak.
Fehr wants to get a deal done.
He has not put a muzzle on the players the way Bettman has on the owners.
Why is that?
If a player attends a meeting, he is also PART of that meeting.
Sure Fehr wants to get a deal done! But he wants a deal that keeps or makes his reputation that he can get done for the players even more than some of them may expect. He wants to pull off the "win", even though it could cost the game. Of course I'm perhaps being overly negative, but he is a union negotiator, not a hockey-first guy.
