Possibly a narrow majority but still a majority. If slightly more than a narrow majority were opposed, there would be a big push on both Bettman and Jacobs.
Owners have said that neither the hardliners nor the moderates could rally the numbers necessary to make a deal. Owners have said the BOG was deadlocked.

What that means:
The camp Bettman supports, doesn't have 16 owners.
The camp Bettman doesn't support, doesn't have 23 owners.
