That's exactly what Bobby Orr said:

"If I were to give them any advice at all, I would say, lock both sides in a room, give them bread and water and don't come out of the room until you make the deal,"

I don't know that he meant just Fehr and Bettman though. The power trip is not theirs (at least most of it isn't). The owners and the players are at a standoff right now and it'd take a good portion, certainly at least the major players from each, locked in there with them to make it work.

Ya I'd pick Fehr in that fight too. Something tells me for a sports guy, Bettman has never seen the inside of a weight room.

And have them, as the Rock would say, whoop some candya$$.

Let's face it - there's no sense of urgency from any side right now. Billionaires will still be billionaires, and millionaires will still be millionaires (just KHL/AHL/SEL millionaires)

Well, having Fehr and Bettman in a fistfight is not the solution. And locking them in a room isn't either: Fehr represents the players and many many have said they will not accept a pay cut this time, so what can Fehr do in that room other than repeat forever that he will not acept a pay cut. The only solution is always the same: time. At some point someone (read the players) will feel the pain and blink.

lock them in a very small room and slowly drip water inside so it eventually fills up.

or get the 10 hardest shooters to shoot at them while they stand up against a wall

80'84': The Dynasty
After the Islanders' regular season dominance and playoff disappointment in 79', Arbour decided that he would no longer concern himself too greatly with his team's finish in the regular season. He focused his team on how they would perform in the playoffs. The Islanders dropped below the 100-point mark for the first time in five years, but they finally broke through and won 4 Stanley Cups.

I haven't been paying attention to the negotiations. It's just about money mostly, isn't it? Can't they just compromise and meet at the mid way point?

Fehr waited till now to answer back to Bettman, He's probably the sole reason this season is getting cutting in half/RUINED!

Not dramatic enough for my taste. Attitude Era WWF "Buried Alive" style or an "I Quit" match seems more appropriate

Thats how it is in the NHL (the most incompetent and unprofessional league in the world). They basically wait until last minute to do some serious meetings. The league is just unorganized and unprofessional when it comes to everything.

Arbitration. Make sure the forced one-year deal is really painful to both sides.

Maybe we should get all of the owners, Bettman and Fehr and make them fight it out to the death like in the Hunger Games.
