Honestly, I believe the owners do realize they have won. I also believe that they have a cut-off date as to when they can fit in a 45 to 48 game schedule. They'll wait until that date in an attempt to squeeze as much out of the PA as possible. If the players move in their direction from here, then the owner's victory is even greater. If the player don't move, then the owners already have won this battle, they seal the deal by the cut-off date and start the season.
Or the season is lost and there is irreparable damage done to the sport. In that case, American fans don't really care and the Canadian fans will come back regardless, so is the sport really that worse off? I doubt it.
