They pushed bettman out for a reason.

It's less money if you offer more concessions too.

If I am the players, I let the owners make the next move.
Because if they don't give now, we are back to square one. A lost season hurts the owners less than the players. Just because the Bettman wants 100% sponsorship doesn't mean he's that vulnerable. He called the lockout to begin with.
