I think that gets lost along the way. Fehr does not have a history of getting bent over in these. In fact, he has always done well for his constituents. Which is why the NHL has hired him. Make no mistake, he has the players drinking the same kool-aid, from the same trough.

This time around, there are LOTS of teams that will loose money. This is not last time, when not playing means loosing less money. I am not saying that the owners break, but my guess is that when this gets done, it will be much closer to center. As to when, well, that is anyone's guess. However, if the owners think that they will get Fehr to blink by canceling the season, they are sadly mistaken. And when teams like Tampa Bay and Buffalo begin to loose real money, there will be enormous pressure placed on Bettman.
