BETTMAN OPENS HIS MOUTH

Today in an address before the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, Gary Bettman once again said no way to a luxury tax. Read the CBC account here.

The players are supposed to be presenting a new proposal, soon, which the owners are sure to reject. Here's what I'm wondering: when are they going to call in a federal mediator or somebody to try and settle this mess? That's what baseball did in 1994- they called in a mediator. Of course it didn't work, but they TRIED. Curious.
