There's only two reasons for the latter:

A) It was a PR leak designed to put pressure on one side (presumably the players), conveniently not leaked to one of the big hockey guys so there's plausibie deniability in case things blow up.
B) It was an intentional leak by someone (presumably Jacobs) who wants to somehow undermine the deal by making negotiations public before it's officially done.
