I don't like to read into things but that doesn't seem to me to be the action of an owner who is optimistic of resolution.
So the millionaire players, who are stealing other people's jobs overseas and in other leagues, not only put their fellow hockey players out of work but now cost 20% salary reductions - just so that they won't have to take a similar cut in salary.
Yup makes sense!
