On a side note, I'm a little embarrassed at what Doan has said and him standing behind Fehr. Crosby and Richards I can understand, but Doan should know better. Watching his this thing implode has been incredible. The players somehow managed to piss off the moderates, including Burkle who originally broke rank to try and get something done. Watching Bettman lay into the players, many of them in the room, was surreal. They threw another $100 million on the table as a sign of good faith and the players didn't care. They won't give the NHL what it wants - why it locked the players out in the first place - so don't expect a season. Bettman's tone and the fact that they took everything off the table indicates to me that they aim to break the union again. I got the impression that the gloves were coming off and not being put back on anytime soon.

When Mark Chipman laments your attitude, you done ****ed up.
