It wouldn't astonish me either way, but I think the Devils are more likely to be in the camp pushing for ending the lockout. The longer it goes, the less profit Vanderbeek can build up to pay down the debt, and therefore the less likely he is to find new investors.

Also, it would be completely illogical to piss away a large part of the season after a Cup Final appearance (and the boost in revenues that would surely have brought) just to save some $10-15 M on Kovy's deal spread out over the life of the contract, by which time Vanderbeek may no longer even be the owner still.
