PLAYERS: Gary Bettman
Daly: "Regardless of what we propose or how we suggest to compromise the answer is "no,"At some pt you have to say "enough is enough". — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) November 16, 2012 I really don't know why the two side can't come to an agreement and get a deal done. The NHL can't afford to lose another whole season. The NHL owners lead by one of the most unlikable people Gary Bettman is trying to break the player union or at least weaken it. If the season is lost, the blame in on the NHL Commissioner in my opinion. Daly: "unfortunately, we have determined we are involved with Union leadership that has no genuine interest in reaching an agreement." — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) November 16, 2012 Series of Daly quotes on league initiated hiatus:"We have made repeated moves in the Players' direction with absolutely no reciprocation." — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) November 16, 2012 Sources have indicated Bettman floated the idea to NHLPA that both sides take 2 week moratorium.This has NOT been discussed further. #TSN — Aaron Ward (@aaronward_nhl) November 16, 2012 #CBA Can confirm what @aaronward_nhl first reported, that Gary Bettman suggested to NHLPA's Don Fehr that two sides take 2-week moratorium — Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN) November 16, 2012 My opinion: Bettman's 2 week moratorium makes no sense if he really wants a deal. Trying to burn calendar, put more pressure on players. — Allan Walsh (@walsha) November 16, 2012 57% is irrelevant now that both sides talking about principle of 50/50. NHLPA agreed to eliminate back diving deals. @globekpd — Allan Walsh (@walsha) November 16, 2012 Related articles Did Bettman over play his hand? (ndgoon.blogspot.com)

Bettman Seems To Be The Topic

Ansar Khan of Mlive answers questions from readers... Q. From all that I have read and heard, the players and fans have one common enemy, Gary Bettman. The level of hate regarding this man is epic. The players could win over the fan base by saying to the owners, “We will take less if you would remove Mr. Bettman as commissioner.'' Have you heard anything along these...

Rob Ray On The Lockout

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Ray isn't blaming the owners or the players. He believes both sides have to share responsibility for not being able to get a deal in place to avoid this mess, but he did note that commissioner Gary Bettman has a track record. "I could sit and say Bettman is a jerk but he's done a decent job growing the game and with TV...

Impeach Bettman

Sometimes, when I'm feeling lonely and blue, I fantasize that I'll have the will power to conditionally boycott hockey.  I imagine taking a stand, giving up blogging and watching and fretting because the bad men stole my game from me, personally. But I know for a fact I'd never stick to it.  Then I start rationalizing and there are moments when I actually believe I...

Ex-Players Speaking Up

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, Attack NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. Personalize the disagreement. Make it appear as though the labour battle is all Bettman’s doing. Emphasize that the union gave “massive” concessions seven years ago. Question why owners are gagged and not allowed to speak freely. NHLPAers have hit those notes consistently over the first 60 days...

Damage Has Been Done

from Tom Gulitti of The Record, No matter how this lockout ends, there will be no winner. Irreparable damage is being done. What sponsor would commit long-term dollars to a business in which management and labor can’t get along well enough to avoid a lengthy work stoppage every time their CBA expires? Some fans may never come back. The NHL estimates it has lost more...

Who Cares Anymore?

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, The players are united and more or less willing to wait it out. As for the owners, some of them like the lockout because they are not losing money, so they’re adamant about gouging the players; others are following the hardliners because they are just wired that way; still others are yachting because they will be printing money...
