To clarify something, the Blues would be effected by a luxury tax. When Bill Laurie bought the team his plan was to lose money for the sake of fielding a competitive team until the new CBA was signed.

Anyway... the owners will win this one way or another. If the negotiations are no where by January I fully expect the owners to start creating a new league and instituting the rules that they want. The players will eventually start coming back because it'll still be their biggest possible paycheck and if the owners were smart about it, they'd honor the contracts that are already signed.
