Just talked with a well respected NHL GM. He said the majority of owners want a deal, Bettman blew it with the initial 43/57 offer, (1)

Bettman, Jacobs,Batterman have no respect for players (or GM's), this whole lockout is one great wasted opportunity to advance the game. (2)

One of the biggest complaints from this NHL GM. Most owners don't understand nuances of CBA, GM's mostly seen by Bettman as the enemy.

This GM used Lamoriello as example. Look what NHL did to Lou and NJ after Kovalchuk signing. Arbitration, huge fine, loss of draft picks.(1)

Last CBA negotiation in 04-05, Lamoriello was constantly involved in negotiations. Where is he now? (2)
