Bettman vs. Goodenow

Never has it been more apparent than after the last set of talks that this thing has gotten personal. It's Bettman vs. Goodenow and millions of people are suffering the consequences. These two clowns are fighting each other through the media and giving the NHL a real black eye. I feel sorry for the "lower-tiered" players who need the income and deep-down are anti-Goodenow. I feel sorry for the fans such as myself who rely on hockey as a means of relaxation and a means of getting away from the rigors of the world. This thing just plain stinks

Surely there is no love lost between these men.
However, this rift is clearly deeper than the dislike between its public faces.

They are attorneys. Fight like hell in the courtroom and go to dinner afterwards.

Same thing here. This is business - not personal.
