With each passing day I just continue to be even more of the mindset that this lockout will go as long as the NHLPA still exists. Until that union withers apart, there will be an impasse. And after a certain point of going back and forth with the players, you better believe the owners will just decide to throw up their hands and move on towards breaking it apart.

And for those of who don't believe the union would dissolve, ask yourself if you can think of any other union that has the type of solidarity that this union has. All the high end players still found work and bailed on their fellow players as soon as they could, while the bulk of their membership is left at home without many meaningful options. Doesn't sound like much of a union to me.
