He is likely flying in to fire his agents. Discussions will go like this:

H: "So what is the state of the contract talks?"
W: "Nothing happening, they don't want to give you a good deal since you have no leverage. We have to wait them out."
H: "Wait for what?"
W: "Wait for them to change their minds."
H: "And what will it take for them to change their minds?"
W: "Don't know, perhaps a lot of injuries will occur."
H: "With their depth that's not likely. So if that doesn't happen, what then?"
W: "Then you may sit out the whole season."
H: "Then what?"
W: "Then there is the lockout, which we think will last a year or two."
H: "Then what?"
W: "Then we have contract talks under the new CBA."
H: "Won't I have even less leverage then?"
W: "Yes, but they will know you are serious about sitting out."
H: "So then I may have to sit out another season?"
W: "Well, until they change their minds."
H: "So your plan is for me to maybe sit out the whole season, then wait out the lockout, then maybe sit out some more?"
W: "It may not be that bad, we hope they will change their minds."
H: "Wait for them to change their minds? I'm changing agents."
