    A recommendation that would form the basis of negotiations. What form could that take? Is this an unassailable committee? Can they provide the moral suasion for impetus to negotiate by providing a frame of reference for it to begin? Or something.

    The owners and players would never agree to it. There is no real representation for either the players or the owners.

    Mario is both owner and player. Neither side would trust that he would have their best interests at heart. Gretzky is a figurehead owner. The rest are agents and management.

    Why would the owners want the CBA to be decided upon by their GM's? It seems they want a CBA to protect themselves from their GM's.

    They wouldnt or couldnt be to decide upon the CBA, but rather just to frame a way to get back to negotiations and how to to approach finding a middle ground. Not like mediators, but more like matchmakers.

    Most of those guys are just going to line up behind Bettman. If Brooks got his wish I think he'd be surprised at the outcome.
