The owners, being businessmen, would likely rather wait out the season to see how things play out next year in the world economy than give in to a deal they dont want. If the fiscal cliff causes the US to go back into recession, I'm sure the owners dont want to be tied into a CBA that makes it tough for them to weather it.
Its a bad time for the players to be playing hard ball.
Looking at it, there is no real reason for either side to go a full year on this. but then again, most people have predicted where this will end up from the start, but it's taken months for them to get that far. Quite a slow process.
However, the NHL is done giving in on certain things, it's up to the PA to make the next move. Otherwise I see another month until the next NHL proposal.
