Why do the owners have to move from their position though. The players havent negotiated since July when they made their first "offer" whereas since then the NHL has made concessions.
If the owners were willing to lockout to begin with NBC pressuring them probably isnt too big of a thing to deal with. I think the players all believe the winter classic is the deadline and if they can just last till December the league will buckle and not lose the winter classic.
So imo either the league starts serious concessions in December to be playing by January or they miss the winter classic and the players go holy **** they were supposed to cave by now according to the Fehr brothers.
If it goes past January the players union starts forming cracks, all those 3rd and 4th liners not good enough for European jobs will start losing the will to sit out while the stars make money in Europe.
