I feel that the owners would rather kill this season and take 5 years starting NEXT year, than take 5 years now.
How will they have a ton of leverage then? What does the centennial mark matter in this?

Edit: Oh, I get it now. The NHL would love to celebrate the centennial year. The players dictating the CBA to end just before it would be a significant feather in their cap.
