I really don't think that's a factor, especially if you have guys like Crosby and Toews in the room endorsing the progress. Fehr can't go against the 'entire' union, especially the stars. If anything, this whole meeting really is starting to look like a setup (in a good way, this time).

It wouldn't shock me if Bettman/Fehr really did negotiate in secret while everyone was focusing on the week it supposedly took to figure out who was going to be in a room, in a meeting conveniently timed with the BOG meeting tomorrow. And all this 'progress' is owners and players informing the other camp what's been agreed to in secret already and hashing out minor details.
