Why budge if you're an owner, why budge if you're a player? The breaking point for the NHLPA will be when players go public that they had to file for bankruptcy. I'm sure there is some sort of loan system in place to make sure this doesn't happen because it will be a PR nightmare for the NHLPA. The owners have the big money, they have the education, they have the background in business dealings, they can afford to sit out another season and the fans will eventually come back, no big deal. The fans still hold the power here, if you're not happy stop spending money on the NHL. I like what tigermask48 suggested, full boycott of spending on anything NHL equaling every day the players were locked out. Tough to battle over revenue when there is none.
