This has probably been mentioned already, but anybody feel like the whole PR balance has been switched? Before, the owners were winning the PR battle hands down, but now that the PA is submitting a proposal and arranging another meeting, it looks more like the players want to get this deal closed and the season started ASAP. I think it was the PA that submitted the last proposal too? Bettman has been taking a licking lately and has been looking pretty weak. I think the media is starting to view him as a bad guy. Now with the PA taking initiative, I think the players are going to take the upper hand in the PR battle.
