We have already witnessed 3 X "Best offer, take it or leave it deals', by Bettman and each time the cool, calm, calculated Fehr didn't flinch and simply waited until Bettman came crawling back with his next "Final best offer", and each time the players have gained in less give backs and the CBA improves in their favour. Bettman hasn't gained anything by his owners lockout as the longer it goes the less the Owners get to take back..
Fehr's endgame for his players is to get the new CBA to be eventually finalized, and be as close to the current expired CBA as he can negotiate. So far he is doing an masterful job doing what he was hired for.
In short, Fehr doesn't give a crap about what happens to the league after he's done with his negotiations.
