It says it right in the article.
Reads more to me like Bettman's making the threat.
and really, Don... "But if there’s some demarcation point, (a date) that it has to be done by, nobody has told us yet." how about before... the start of the season? really, Don? That's some serious just-want-to-play negotiating right there.
The PA doesn't get 300 mil in make-whole if they start the season on time.
It's automatically true that some sort of deal will be completed before the start of the season.
The NHL's offer would not be this favourable to the players had they started the season on time.
