The guys on XM were talking earlier about how this is no longer about money or financial issues as the sides are close in terms of money. This is now about ideology and power. If that is so, I don't see how this is going to get settled. It becomes similar to the last lockout when the big issue was also ideological (the salary cap).
Financial issues always can be compromised. Even personal hatreds can be put aside in the name of consensus. Ideological issues that become moral issues in the eyes of the opposing sides cannot.
If that is the case, there is no way out of this disaster and we are facing a nuclear winter that will destroy the NHL or, at minimum, set it back for a decade.
No matter what side we are on or if we are disgusted with both sides, this is incredibly sad.
