Or one can say that the players clearly know where the deal is going and they aren't fighting 50/50. Given the profits of the last 7 years and the summer spending spree, a fair concession is honoring contracts. Why should the players automatically get bent over with zero consideration?

The deal that settles this would have been signed months ago by the PA. It comes down to Bettman maximizing his side's take. He only knows how to do it through months of locking out.
