So it is really a mystery to me why you believe Fehr would even want to think about doing this. It's like saying Bettman is working toward the re-introduction of the C Form.
I am aware of the strong potential of a nuclear owner response. However Fehr's tactics are equally as strong. The only unknown is how much stomach the players have for going nuclear. Essentially, I believe that he is going after the cap or he is going after escrow and probably in a way that is much stronger than has been revealed.
