Do you seen any comments about the players from the owners about how they're treated? No. Because they sensible whilst the players whine on twitter about how they're "harshly treated" but would be glad to go back in an instant to play hockey once a deal is done.
Speaking of which, that should be a fun one to defend in court when the NHL brings up the fact that "All the players want to do is play," but they had to be haggled with to sign a 10 year CBA, and still want an opt-out clause a year earlier.

Just ask the folks in Detroit.

I wonder what we would be hearing should Bettman lift the public speaking ban on the owners.

It would be interesting indeed.

So what you're saying is Bettman is considerably smarter than Fehr for doing so...
