Since no one has posted anything since what I posted above, I'll just add this question here:

Does all this mean that both sides have now given up totally on this Season; or is what's happening now the last desperate attempt for one side or the other to get its way, and then in the last second... OK, uncle, let's play hockey with what's left of the Season?
It is obvious that the players at the top of the salary scheme are greedy. why do the european players come to this country to play hockey when their are leagues in their own countries? Because they get paid a lot more money here. They would get paid enough in their own countries to have a decent life. It is pure greed that they come here.

perhaps if the owners introduced something into bargaining limiting each team to 1 foreign player the greedy foreign players would want to settle.
