I hope Fehr isn't obstinate enough to try and push the owners any further. They've already made a considerable show of ill-intentions just to get to this point.
Agreed, the PA cant use the Winter Classic as leverage.

So the NHL is now going to offer a soft landing of sorts, I'd like to say that I'm optimistic but this is Fehr that we are talking about.
