In effect, yes. But the way one says it has a bearing on what is implied.
If you say it like :"He stood up to Subban's demands' implies that his goal was to lock horns with PK and make him blink.
Stating that "he did not budge on the bridge contract" implies a dedication to a strategy/doctrine regarding player contracts, not a desire to impose one's will over the other.
