But it seems that there is starting to be some unrest amongst the players and I don't think Fehr will be able to keep them inline that much longer, sooner or later the players will force him to make a deal.
That last sentence could just as easily be:

But it seems that there is starting to be some unrest amongst the owners and I don't think Bettman will be able to keep them inline that much longer, sooner or later the owners will force him to make a deal.

If there's any truth, it's that some of the owners and some of the players are putting pressure on their respective representitives in these negotiations.
