seems pretty obvious what caused the chill
It really seems that Fehr has been doing this right along, such as when the NHL made the 50/50 proposal in Oct to save the season.
During the 94 MLB strike, Fehr told the players that the owners had a date in mind when they would make their best offer. The owners said they did not. That date never came. the World Series was lost and the next year the courts ordered them back on the field. Fehr did not negotiate an agreement.
He knows how to say no and to litigate, but I don't think he's a deal maker.
