I really hope, for the average to marginal players' sake, they get this done sooner rather than later. Guys who are fringe NHLers, who hasn't quite cashed in yet, they're the real losers in all this, perhaps even more so than the fans. Financially, they may never get a chance to make NHL salary, which they could or would have got this year.
Many or most fringe NHLers may never cash in. Last year may have been their high salary year of $3.2m. They would never increase on that amount even if they were playing.

So if the seaosn is lost, Fehr will have done them no favors. - and obviously cost them quite a bit of money.
