But they've already responded to it by refusing to take a two week break. Bettman and the owners will most likely hear back from Fehr in some form or another. This tactic is more or less a ploy to get the players to urge Fehr to craft something to bring both sides closer towards an agreement.

Remember, Fehr's initial response was that he has to discuss the suggestion of a moratorium with his players. They responded by refusing it. That tells me the players want to get a deal done rather than sit on their hands and wait for a favorable offer to come their way (which isn't happening).
