How will Fehr explain a missed season (if that happens)?

As far as we know, the so-called money issues are pretty much settled (give or take few changes).

The argument is about contract issues which have only indirect effects on players, in the end players will get the 50% which has been agreed upon.

So tell me this; how would the PA get back the money they will miss (1.89B) if the season is cancelled? It would mean they would need a deal that gets them 190M MORE than current NHL proposal EVERY season for the next 10 years (or even more if the next CBA is shorter than 10 years) to justify sitting out for the season.

What are the chances of owners caving to that extent that would make up for the money lost for the players?

When will the players see the light? How many players are actually willing to lose the season given that 70% of the contracts are up in 3 years?

What are the players fighting for? Long-term contracts given only to star players?

What does your average 3rd-4th line forward or 3rd pairing d-man gain from missing the season?

If the whole season is missed, who's the one to stand up and tell PA it wasn't worth it?
