This could mean a lot of things...
For one, the owners (as a collective) have a certain amount of money set aside to cover expenses that would be incurred whether there is a lockout or not. I would highly doubt if they anticipated and have the money required to front that $60+ million payroll in Montreal.
This also means that Montreal ownership, who I'm betting is already on the fence with the position the owners are taking, is now DEFINITELY not interested in a lockout. And I'm betting that here are plenty of other teams, like Philly, NYC, Toronto, and the other high grossers that are not exactly keen on Bettman's current stance. They claim to be united but this could cause some cracks.
Yours in Christ,
