It's not just that the players gave up a lot in 2004 ... it's that Bettman had a blank canvas to do basically whatever he wanted to fix the system and he did such a crappy job that he was complaining again five years later.

There's no reason to trust Bettman's competence in this go round, and it can't be surprising that Fehr and the players really aren't buying in. (There's, of course, less than zero reason to repose any trust in Bettman personally, or in his word -- but that's very old news.)
