If Bettman handed Fehr a proposal that was identical in every way to the current/recently expired one, Fehr would sign off on it by this afternoon, and we could have hockey tomorrow. Thus the belief that players would be playing right now if given the choice.

The Owners are not willing to play under the old CBA and thus we have a lockout.
