After that NHLPA said they wanted to stop with the owner/player meetings because they wanted Fehr in the room for future meetings. The four new owners said ok and went home (except Tanenbaum, who left the day before because he was discouraged with what had happened) and Daly went to the meeting to accept what he thought was an acceptance/rejection of the NHL proposal.
If the players say they want to stop the owner/player meetings and NHL say ok, where is the drama?
