I'm still taking the optimistic view here. That the owners and players somehow know if the deal got done in a week or so the WC could be revived and therefore they're trying to meet that crunch. Losing the WC is very bad for both sides. One important part about the WC is that it's the ideal kick-off point for the NHL season. It's a "Hey, the NHL's back! Look, Winter Classic! Isn't it fun this is the first game?" to get the buzz going. I think they're going to get very serious in the next half week to make an attempt to save it
