If you take a look at the owners statements alone, and if you can consider Bettman's statement from last night you'll see there's much more to it than Bettman. Toronto owner seems to be very much on the lockout bus now after trying to negociate with players and Bettman said he had to convince owners to give an extra 100 mil on make whole, something owners had a problem with. So if you are to believe him he wants to give more than a lot of owners do (not every owner obviously, there are some out there that would sign the same deal as before if we started October 1st).
