Could be posturing, not sure how much stock I'd put into it, but none the less, I don't like hearing about it...One thing that concerns me is the highest paid players will certainly have other options to make money, so the sense of urgeny to start playing again might not favor us fans.

I wouldn't be surprised, it will go on until one side folds. I don't see either Fehr or Bettman putting aside their ego and giving in, seeing how much they hate eachother. Also, with all the players invading Europe it seems they're expecting a long lockout.
It's pretty sad, the NHL looks to be moving in a good direction then this happens.
