Not impossible, just unlikely based on where both sides sit firmly entrenched at the moment.

Bettman is on record as claiming they will not play less that 48 game season (~approx 1/2) and for that to happen a new CBA must be in place by mid January or so to fit that type of schedule just like what happened in the 1994/95 shortened season.

So there is still a limited amount of time remaining, and the damage in fan response to this lockout would be lessened by a partial season than no season at all. I think both sides know this all to well.
