from Chris Stevenson at the Toronto Sun,
How about the players save their obvious hatred and criticism of Bettman and channel that energy into negotiating?
The league got criticized for putting its offer out there in the public domain, but at least the NHL has crafted something the players and others can tear down. And didn't NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr once say he'd like to see negotiations televised?
We haven't heard anything constructive from the players' side since they made an offer during two days of meetings in New York almost five weeks ago. The NHL crafted a response to that offer in about an hour, I think it was, and since then, there's hasn't been anything but static from the players.
The NHL has now made the past two offers, basically negotiating against itself.
