My way of negotiating? How were you capable of interpreting my way of negotiating from what I said? I didn't say go to the table without Fehr and sign a deal that isn't desirable, but they need to find a way to get things going. Bettman is doing his best to split the PA and with them sitting around all quiet, I think it's working. There is a deal to be done here, having two subborn leaders is not helping.
The way I see it is the league is hurting themself because a lot of casual fans really don't care that we aren't watching hockey. The players are hurting themselves because I don't know many people who are behind them.
Do you truly believe a fair deal can't be made here? I do.
