The sooner the players realize this, the better. Also I believe (personal opinion) the losing money owners are not the driving force.

The have's are, Toronto,Pitt,MTL,Philly; don't want to subsidize the league.
Exactly. The players want Toronto, Montreal and NY to give all of their profits to the rest of the NHL so that they can keep their 57% share. The same 57% they received from that "horrible" CBA that they were forced to accept.

There won't be a deal until the NHLPA members revolt and force Fehr to negotiate a deal.
