Everything the owners said and did in this negotiation was scripted. Including, most likely, the final act of attributing the deal to the "unselfish" actions of the players and owners in coming together without Bettman and Fehr to make a deal around December 5. This way you can build up public support for the players now that you need them to make money, and allow the public to blame Bettman and Fehr for the deal taking so long to make.

Totally scripted.
