Remember about a year ago when both Bettman and Fehr expressed interest in negotiating the next CBA while the final season of the last one played out?
Unfortunately, reality sunk in - and the disgusting battle for power and leverage was placed above the game and it's fans -- as is usually the case.
What is negotiating achieving at this point? Why argue over getting a bigger piece of a pie that is getting smaller by the day? Cancel a season and leadership on both sides can't hide anymore. Let the corporate money (Comcast) get involved. At this point, nothing lasting or truly effecting will be agreed upon. Who needs another bandaid when 3,4,5 years from now, everything is back to square one.
Neither side should get the chance to claim victory or come off as looking. Both sides deserve nothing more than abject failure.
