The only logical explanation for what happened today that I can come up with is that the small market teams that killed the deal today did it as leverage to get the big market owners to revenue share....essentially holding this season hostage to getting the revenue sharing that these big market teams all but refuse to do. Why else would the players angry, feeling like they were duped.....because they WERE. This was an owners fight today, and the players were just here for window dressing. I think the time for chicken between Bettman and Goodenow was Wednesday, but the day for chicken between the big market owners and small market owners was today...... I could still envision a rabbit being pulled out of the hat by the end of the weekend, but that hope is slim to none. If it does occur, I think you will see meaningful revenue sharing as part of it.
