For one season yes, but after that point it depends on how long the decertification process takes. The absolute worst case is to have decertification extend on into the next season while both parties are unwilling to settle.
Fehr has to gauge when the "actual" drop dead date is. If he can do that, he can leverage his position to try and extract that last little bit from the owners (pushing contract limits from 5 years to 7 years - which essentially closes the loophole to have BDCs). That's the final thing he needs before he signs off IMO.
