My question

"What are the owners afraid of if they also thought they were close to a deal"

Why is his presence in the room a deal breaker?

I assume it's because he is their intellectual equal and in most cases their superior as it pertains to these discussions but they had no problem playing the intellectual superior role to the players.

The whole thing was a complete end around and it didn't work, so then we get a CLEARLY rattled Bettman at the podium spouting off BS.

The owners are funny and pathetic at the same time.

Quite amusing.

It was an end-around for the most part.
