I can't for the life of me figure out how the owners would allow the season to be canceled instead of taking the 8 year offer. This would basically ensure that no team would have a star player locked up past age 35 or 36, assuming the max contract was given when the player hit UFA status at 27. It's totally reasonable for both sides imo.
