I would not pay much attention to all these reports because if there source is not Fehr or Bettman, they have no clue about what there pychological end goal is.
Its really all mind games Fehr knew the NHL did not want the early season less money generating games witch is also taking away those paychecks from the players, he waited for those games to be cancelled and then said oh btw we want our contracts made whole.
This was to piss of the Owners, he has been trying to get under the skin of the weaker franchise owners to get them to go to the big money teams and demand more money in revenue sharing, this means that only the poorer teams want revenue sharing more than ever, witch is created a little divide in the owners.
The Owners came back with the paying the first two years becuase most players are not more than 3 years on a deal making most of the players like that, and the really long term guys witch 7+ years witch there are not as many look really greedy, trying to divide the union a little.
Both parties have been hard at work trying to divide the others, now that either they have acomplished there goal, or know that the other party will not crack they are at the table.
They are really trying to get a deal now thats what I think, but if the Owners are dead set on not having a season its another mind game to get what they want in March.
