That doesn't make any sense, what would be the point of going after the salary cap? Fehr has no motivation based on the agreed to 50/50 split of hockey revenue that they'll get to one way or the other regardless of how quickly.
The cap just creates a more competitive environment, which is good for the league and therefore both the owners and the players.
The owners are just putting that out there as yet another attempt by both parties to manipulate fans and/or the players in an effort to put pressure on Fehr to "prove something". It won't work.
