I'm surprised by how people are confusing the ability to annoy with the ability to strike fear. Suddenly wanting players to be paid for games they'll never get back is no different than a stinkbomb in the school bathroom.
None of us, including the owners, have an inkling of what Fehr's end game is. He doesn't care about the game and I have little doubt he cares if the league cancels another season.

He is walking away after this CBA is done, so I also doubt he cares about long lasting ramifications.

The man is a wizard at keeping his union strong and unwavering. This means things very well could go nuclear... Removal of the cap, etc.

The owners would be quite foolish not to be afraid of what he will do.
