Why do you think they didn't want him in the room? Speculate, if you would?
It's not obvious?

How would you see it if the owners demanded Bettman be involved in the middle of a negotiation? You would likely call them out on trying to pull a fast one on the players.

If there's one thing these players are unified on is their apparent complete lack of understanding of CBAs. It was obviously incredibly over their head and needed their PA head to Fehr-ize it for them and get involved. Once that happened the player/owner meeting was effectively finished.

At this point I fee like Fehr is dragging this as long as possible so he keeps getting paid. I actually view him as that petty.
