There's zero interest in trying to be fair, and make a legit effort to save the season. He's got a bunch of children in a room full of wolves. Right where he wanted them.
I know you're passionate about the lockout, but think of it from a business standpoint. You've got a bunch of people that don't know the other side's point of view in a room being updated on the labor strike. They have questions that the NHLPA cannot always answer or need the league's clarification on their stance.
Enter NHL rep Bill Daly that is privvy to all discussions and can clarify what the league has been saying if needed. The rest of the time he is quietly present to help keep the bridges on both sides of the discussion open.
This isn't a war, I'm sure both sides will return to work just fine afterwards when they start seeing their checks coming in.
