The NHL has a deadline is place. If Fehr believes it's a fake deadline, I won't be surprised if he continues to play games with the league. It's too much to expect Fehr and Bettman to come to a deal before a deadline so the deadline is going to be a mess. If only they could both be reasonable.

Fehr's strategy: Offer unreasonable proposals right up to cancellation deadline, reject each of NHL's proposal
Bettmans strategy: Offer a more reasonable proposal, then concede things very, very slowly, no dramatic changes
