I disagree with this interpretation.

The Commissioner and the NHLPA Executive Director have to be involved. They were willing to reduce their visibility yesterday in order for things to not seem personal. However, they hung around the hotel all day yesterday and they were implicated in some way. There is no way that six owners were given a mandate to do a deal. Bettman and Fehr being back in the room today suggests to me that a deal is closer than it was yesterday.
