Why do you think they didn't want him in the room? Speculate, if you would?
If I may interject, I suspect the idea was to develop some degree of harmony, however tentative. There has simply been too much animosity whenever either Bettman or Fehr are involved, and this process was an attempt to remedy that. I do not doubt at least some of the owners perhaps mulled over the idea of "pulling a fast-one" but I also believe they fully anticipated having the leaders finalize. The PA just jumped the gun, so to speak.
