The only way these guys will believe him is if GB goes up to a podium and officially tells the world the season will be cancelled on X date. Actually I still don't think these guys would believe him.

I think it would need him cancelling the season and then players would come crawling to Fehr to make a deal.
Sad reality... this is something the league brought onto themselves. Now the league's backed themselves into a corner where the PA will not believe them until they actually do it... at which point it's too late...

However the PA must believe that at some point very soon a 48 game schedule will not be possible, and the league will cancel the season. Whether it's next Thursday the 10th, or the 17th, they have to know that time is rapidly running out.

"Itís not as if Donald Fehr was lying to us, several players said. Rather, itís as if he has been economical with information, these players believe, not sharing facts these players consider to be vital."
