there is way too much spin out there to draw the line of who's a bad guy who is a good guy.

Both sides have done stupid ****, PA with not ever being serious till now, NHL for trying to win on all points. this lockout will end if and when both sides cut the **** and star being serious.

On the other hand tho, anyone else feel that Fehr tore Bettman a new one? Bettman suggested that Owners and Players meet, most believed that Fehr would never allow it, he did. So owners and players meet, they cut the ****, owners shift and give on issues they previously "gave as much as we can give on" Fehr smells the soiled diapers and goes for the kill. Just seems like he set it up and waited for the right time to pounce.

At the end of it, owners are infuriated, they claim again to pull it from the table (each time they did this the offer got better for the players), and they still need to get a deal done to save the season.

So can anyone be surprised by this move?
