True, but I don't really know how much public opinion matters in stuff like this. The players and owners aren't really as beholden to the fans and public as people would like to think (because really, unless the NHL really managed to do something mindblowingly dumb, the fans will be back in their seats when hockey resumes), so they can win the PR war but still lose the CBA battle and vice versa.

Or maybe more clearly, I dont' think either side is feeling pressure from the public about this.
