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?
The owners would only continue if there was no Fehr?
Why do you think they didn't want him in the room? Speculate, if you would?
