Fehr is holding the last negotiation (04-05) and the rollback against the owners.

He has stated multiple times that the league is growing in revenues and therefore the players should not have to move an inch. In fact, Fehr would take a bigger percentage if he could.

This is a disaster. Donald Fehr is a negotiator. He probably never watched a game of hockey in his entire life. This is a legal beagle game of chicken for him. He has zero skin in the game. He is making millions off this so called negotiation and the longer this goes on he makes more and more. Anybody really believe Fehr is hanging around after this is all said and done? This is his retirement fight

I would not be shocked if we lose two seasons.
I don't think there's a chance in hell that anyone would let that happen. Though, if you asked me in the 02-03 season if I thought hockey would be out of commission 2 times in the next decade, I would have said the same thing

(granted I was 12 years old, and probably a bit naive )
