If the owners think they can break the union they are in for a surprise. Sure the owners have a 300 million dollar war chest, which will be gone in the year. Where as 75% of the players can go years without a paycheck and the alot of the 25% can go to Europe and play if they really need the money.
Any owner that is losing money, which is most of the teams, will lose LESS money by NOT playing hockey than they would by accepting a NHLPA tilted CBA.

If the owners stand firm, they'll win. It has worked in both Basketball and Football.
