That's part of why I'm not yet convinced they'll come to their senses and deal now. I still think Fehr's planning on a court fight, he's more comfortable in a courtroom than negotiating anyway.
The less cynical viewpoint is I think he feels there'll be immense pressure on the league (especially Bettman) to do a deal the closer to the deadline it gets. They can talk tough but they have to know the damage they'd do by shutting down another year, and Bettman himself may be negotiating for his job.
