Stoll: The players aren't going to cave

Veteran center Jarret Stoll of the Los Angeles Kings gave us his view on where things stand on the lockout:

"Just seems to me that the owners have had a set date in their mind this whole time, when they would like to actually negotiate and show the players just a little bit of respect," Stoll told ESPN.com via text message Friday. "And, in the meantime, hoping the players cave, which isn't gonna happen. Now it's gonna get really interesting with what we decide to do. This whole process has been one-sided from the start ... which is why we're at this stage."
