your hypothesis requires 2 big assumptions: 1) that the league was never going to agree to anything other than what was agreed to, and 2) that should the NHL fold another league would not materialize nearly immediately. Among other things, the NHL's history indicates there is a market for hockey.

Saskin saved the owners.
