I think they genuinely wanted to get a deal done here and they were doing a pretty good job until that process got derailed. Got further than when any of the two leaders have been involved.

I have no reason to believe their disappointment isn't genuine, just as I have no reason to believe Crosby's is.

It's easy to become cynical because of the mess this entire process has been, but I think the new owners and the moderate players wanted this to work.
