You're right, I should've said "prior to any games cancelled", i.e mid-october.
Owners care about the money. Other than the 50/50 (and the pension issue), all the other issues are about how the players divide the money they get. ELCs, contract length, variance, free agency etc. don't directly affect the money players are getting in total.
