I know Fehr's history, he helped build the union in MLB to a state of which it is arguably the best run union in all pro sports. I never once said Bettman and the NHL is solely to blame for all of this. Fehr is a hard negotiator and I think without question his ego due to his history has this already made this hard problem that much more complex. Bettman has many great assets, and he has been good for the NHL, but that doesn't matter to me anymore. His track record for work stoppages is the worst in the history of pro sports in any league. As a fan, to me it is unacceptable. Gary has done his part, and after this is resolved I'd like to see the NHL go in a different direction.
