Bettman says the owners pushed hard on new deal last night. Bettman says union response last night was "shockingly silent."

Enough. I'm not spending another penny on the NHL until Bettman is let go. I'll just stream games online.

Bettman on right now. Looks like he's constipated, looks like he's about to blow a gasket.

Time to desertify or put the salary cap back on the table. The NHL owners are a joke.

Gary makes it seem like the Owner's are the one's giving.

THE PLAYERS HAVE GIVEN OVER A BILLION DOLLARS.

And they think offering 100 Million dollars of the contracts they signed and agreed to, is a huge movement.

Give me a break you crybabies, why don't we lock all the owner's in a room with a binky and a baby bottle full of milk until they get it through there heads that this won't be a landslide victory and that they have to give a little bit aswell.

Un-fricken-believable, what a bunch of greedy bastards, I wish I didn't love this game and this team so much so I could just turn my back on the whole NHL, seriously debating it though... This is getting frustrating, I can imagine how the players feel about the whole thing.

Bettman: Union is suggesting their moves mean sides are close to a deal..moves were dependant on union agreeing to other issues, and haven't

"They took very little consideration to the deal"

Lol like when the NHL declined the PA's proposal in 10 minutes.

Everything Gary said is so hypocritcal.

Thank god for football, I couldn't careless if the season is lost anymore. Don't even know if I'll watch if they do start up. I love the Canucks, but hate the league.

The nhl and the owners should be careful what they wish for. They might think 5 year max contracts sound like a good idea, and on the surface they are, as they protect them from a 10, 12, 15 year contract on an investment that is far from being a guarantee. But what about when Sidney Crosby walks away from Pittsburgh after a 5 year deal, what if Stamkos, Giroux, Tavares do the same?

The owners are going to handcuff themselves so much that they are going to regret it after they start losing these superstar players that they invested signifcant time and development in. 7 or 8 year max contracts makes more sense for both sides.
