Now it's come out that "he's prepared to cancel the season" on that date? Obviously. That's why it's a dropdead date. I would hope he'd prepared to do so by that time.
But as already stated, it's a useless deadline. Because one side will blink before that time. Either the players will take it seriously and move the extra inch needed to meet the NHL, or the players won't take it seriously and the owners will move the extra inch needed to meet the players. Cancelling the season at this point won't happen.
