I don't see Bettman's confirmation of a lockout as any type of surprise. Why would the owners not use their hammer...players not getting pay checks. IMO it is a reasonable line in the sand to get something done. Overall things seem to be playing out much better than last time. The retoric is way down compared to 2004 and both sides actually seem to be trying to engage in the process. If the players come out with a well thought out counter proposal rather than posturing we might start seeing some movement. There is still plenty of time.
