The owners don't want to pay it(they want it to come out of salary rollback). Even Westgarth said "Now it's a matter of meeting in the middle on the remaining issues".
They are closer to a deal than people think, the crap Bettman and Fehr are spouting is PR. Both sides know the deal is close.
The players were waiting for the owners to blink; and they did with 50/50. It just a matter of the owners giving a little more now.
Right!. The players got a quick offer back and they are still within their week limit. The cancellation of games was all pr and they could still play the proposed expidited schedule.
