It's looking more and more like the players are going to learn another really painful lesson. Bettman is a fool for starting to negotiate so late and the players are fools for not recognizing that the owners hold all the power. The only leverage the players had was the owners' desire to avoid damage to league growth by pissing off fans with cancelled games. We're there now, so the players have no leverage left. They're basically cooked at this point, either they accept whatever the owners shovel to them or they can get by flipping burgers for a few months
