Ego or not, "saving face" or not, he was brought in by the PA to get them the best deal possible. Besides, if the NHL refuses to negotiate with him, doesn't that seem like more of an "ego" win than anything by proving he's so tough nobody wants to take him on?
I looked through the post you quoted to see if I used the word "ego", and I see that I did not. I said that he's in this for his job as a sports union leader, and I talked about saving his "reputation", again as a "sports union leader"; and the part about "saving face" relates to protecting that reputation as a "sports union leader". But I still stick by the other comment I made, that Fehr doesn't care about the "hockey" side of the equation, what's good for the NHL.
