The only way to know for sure is to put a proposal to a vote
Not really. The players in the past have never been shy about speaking out on this issue.Anyone who has followed previous lockouts can attest to this. I'm not sure why so many posters feel that they know what the players are thinking. Some, not directed at you, seem to be trying to reflect their own personal views on the players. So far all we know is that public dissension is almost nil. Could there be a big brewing backlash ready to surface? Sure it's a remote possibility. Just not very likely, IMO. If a lot of players were upset with the committee they would be spaking out. Don't forget that the players hired Fehr. They knew they were getting a person who was a hardliner.
