But, again, what unreasonable demands did the NHLPA make? It's the league that started from a point (in June) where no reasonable negotiation could start from. It just seems to me like throwing your hands up and blaming both sides is a cop out.

Keep in mind I was absolutely on the "side" of the league during the last lockout, if you want to call it that. I don't think it's about taking a side so much as just observing a very obvious pre-orchestrated lockout by the league. There were rumours last winter that Bettman wouldn't "give in" like his buddy David Stern and would prove his mettle.

Well, I guess he did.
