So when you say Bettman isn't willing to bridge talks, are you saying he should have offered more money to the players? That's basically the only meaningful thing on the table here.

(And if so, how do you square that with the fact that the NHL is the poorest of the major 4 leagues, and yet offered its players the highest % of revenue out of all of them in time for a full season? Assuming other operating costs are pretty similar to, say, basketball, the math would suggest the NHL would need to pay even less.)
