I don't see the big deal...

the best thing that can happen for the players is for Bettman to declare an impasse, set his own rules, the players strike, scabs come-out, arenas are 1/4-1/2 full, at best, with fans paying lower ticket prices and places like the Garden determine that it's better to be dark on 1/2 the time there would be hockey and have concerts the other half, and thus the owners are nearly forced to the table working off the players' deal. Otherwise, the owners have worthless franchises, which many who have recently purchased team won't be too happy.
