I'm sure there is some reason why the owners wouldn't consider this, but people's jobs are on the line here!

I know for a fact that O'Connor's Irish Pub in Kanata almost lost nearly a million dollars in revenue during the last lockout. I imagine bars/pubs all around north america suffered similar fates...
The NHLPA said they would do it but the NHL said no way.
