On Friday I was fairly certain that LT and RB's statements were geniune. But given the articles I've read over the weekend and this morning, it seems more plausible to me that they were in on a concerted effort by the NHL/Proskauer to get the players to leave Fehr at the door.
Fehr is making the Owners work for a CBA. He's not playing by their rules. Every take-it-or-leave-it offer has been met with a counterproposal. The NHL is frustrated. Bettman singling out Fehr in his statement was a clear attempt to pursuade mutiny. The NHL doesn't want to make any more concessions and they know they might have to if Fehr is still steering the NHLPA's ship.
