Unless something greatly changes in the way the CBA is shaping up, we can already say the players won't make up lost money. To be fair, I guess something crazy could happen like the owners offering 1 billion in make whole but I just don't see it happening. I suppose I'll leave some small room for a black swan event like that happening.

Even what the players were asking for in make whole doesn't cover what the players have lost by now (asking for $389 million and have now sacrificed $558 million according to the sportsnet clock).

Fehr needs to start thinking about a deal because here's what'll happen:

-in the end the owners win present negotiations
-in the end, the players will end up making out like bandits and we'll all laugh about how the owners "won" the lockout
