Unfortunately, this time the lesson will be visited upon the owners as well. They players are SO pi$$ed off, that they will not only miss this season, but the next one as well. Yes, they will heed Fehr. This is why they got him. If you think that they owners will simply sit and congradulate Bettman next October when they are not only missing the anciliary revenue that they missed out on this year again, but now they will also be faced with not having ANY revenue from a single sold ticket. And, oh, by the way, that television contract? You will now be staring at having to play they last two years for free.
Once this season goes, yes, the owners will be prepared to wait. But facing the above scenarios next October and November is not what they are prepared to do. Fehr will wait them out. And, while the playes will feel more pain, they are galvanized enough to force the owners to cut their own noses off. This is a poison pill. Fehr will push the owners to either come up with a solution or fold the league.
