Jacobs will not do this. As bad as you think the guy is there is a reason they selected the owners they have to come to this thing. It is to show the moderates the players position for them to see for themselves and be stunned by. At least that would appear to be the plan, this is not an attempt to bully, if it was the owners would be different. Now what should really scare the players is two hours in Vinik or Chipman slam their fist on the table. That is probably Jacobs and Bettman's end game. Of course assuming they don't think meaningful movement is possible.
