I do think that if Fehr goes for 2 that he will be surprised.

I could see GB going with a counter for year 2. Sign before Sept. 15 or season 2 is toast. Fehr will have a huge issue with the lower end as 2 years much less one will close out a LOT of careers. If the older guys are still voting . . .

I also see the long lockout as making it even more certain that linkage will be retained and would not be surprised to see the league become more intractable about a higher percentage for owners as a lot of their expenses are fixed and will suffer with a lower total HRR.
