I don't see how they can go back on their word to all the teams in the league after letting them begin process' of finding other events to fulfill the month.
If some owners have booked something in November in place of a hockey game, the league will most likely adjust the schedule however they need to to ensure that at the end of the regular season, all teams have played the same amount of games. However, don't you think the owners would prefer to have hockey back on those dates than to go looking for people to rent the arena? I don't think there's an issue of going back on their 'word'. I don't think the owners don't have anything lined up, I don't think they're going want the league to keep their 'word' while their arena sits empty making no money.
