I really can't see cancelling the season as a legitimate option. Bettman and Fehr, while prone to work stoppages, are well-educated and experienced leaders. If they have even a shred of rationality, they'll see there is far more to lose by cancelling the season than meeting each other half-way. The gap isn't even that large.
