Well i guess it cuts both ways. But if Bettman would accept his victory and play the season out now, they are going to continue with great revenue growth.

If the owners lock them out the rest of the year, then they will gain the satisfaction of being right about the PA's calculations of revenue growth being too high and making their preferred method of compromise more difficult. Meaning a new creative attempt at compromise and negotation will probably need to be found since delinkage in order to freeze salaries could be much costlier then.
