Fehr is a much better poker player because every time he bluffs, Bettman folds and packs up shop, and each time he returns to the table the CBA gets better and better (by surrendering less) for the PA, whom Fehr is employed by..

The Billionaire Owners that broker large corporate deals all the time, thought they could bluff the uneducated players into a bad CBA for them by this mismatch of business savvy, but they also held fast and in the end the mighty Owners folded up, and left the table the big losers in this last go round.

The ball caps and toques all just apart of the image of the players representing the regular guy, just like you and I trying to earn a living, and having a union fight for them to prevent unfair labour practices.
