This is a completely different animal. Those tactics won't jive here.

How can Fehr ever justify to the players that losing one/two seasons is gonna benefit these players right now? The longer the lockout lasts the more they lose, even if they win their money, *all of it minus the lost seasons* how is losing (I'll use J-Neal's 5.0/10.0) when they're not gonna make that even with a better HRR share % over the length of their contract.

There's a time and a place for what he's doing. He should have saved it for a strike, not a lockout.
