They will break.

They may have a slush fund for their first year, but are they going to sit out two years? How about five? How about ten? Franchises will fold and these players will have nowhere to play except a few large markets, Canadian markets or surviving markets in hockey-boom areas.

When was the last time a Fehr-led union held out for a five-year period? Can't think of one offhand...the players will break because they need the money, the fame and the work more than the owners need to spend on said players. The sooner Fehr signs on the bottom line the sooner this ends and we can start going back to > < = threads about our favourite players. :p

Not a particular fan of Fehr's negotiating tactics thus far. Not a huge fan of the owner's stance, either.

Except it's his job to turn the wants and needs of 30 different people into dynamic proposals that grow the game and avoid situations exactly like this. The issue being, he's a yes man, not a leader, and is capitulating to the demands of a cabal of a few incredibly wealthy and prosperous owners, screwing small markets, players and fans all at once.
