They're doing it because holding it over the owners' head has been working. And it wouldn't have worked before if they kept doing it over and over until their bluffed was called. Now they're just taking Bettman up on his threat that there is a drop dead date, because if the drop dead date isn't the drop dead date, the owners are going to fall apart. If Bettman was serious about ever having more than half of a season, he would have forced the players to this point in November if he would have simply cancelled the season then like he should have.

Both sides know this will be settled in a conference room, not a court room.
