Furthermore, why does bettman have to set such extremes to his methods, including recurring lockouts?
Of course neither sides' initial offers were considered fair by either side. And you know what? Both sides will be grumbling about the CBA whenever they do reach an agreement. That's just how negotiations work.
Recurring lockouts is nothing new in sports. The system needs to be tweaked until they get it right. Unfortunately, you cannot trust GMs to abide by the spirit of the rules. If it wasn't for idiots like Holmgren, Sather, Chuck Fletcher (Wilds' GM), and co, we wouldn't even be in this mess. Now that these fools started handing out ******** contracts, the players actually feel entitled to them.
