The owners also know how to work press releases better than players.

.: the players are more likely to get screwed on a deal if they don't confer with Fehr than the owners are if they don't confer with Bettman.

The owners know that a room without Fehr is a room that's conducive to the owners getting a better deal. They know that any time Fehr steps into the room, they can break negotiations and pin it on Fehr and the PA through their PR skills.
and yet without Fehr in the room the players were getting better terms than they had to that point..
