I don't know that this will really change Weber's mind, what with that 8mil signing bonus.
It's like threatening me with sharks with laser beams if I pee in the pool. It is so phenomenally unlikely that I will end up in that situation as to have no meaning. I'll throw out a bet that the number of former NHLers working at Timmy's to pay bills is in the single digits.
As for 'will the players cave if Bettman threatens the season?' I'm gonna say i'd lean more towards 'no' at this point.
