NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr introduced the elimination of the NHL's salary cap as a possible bargaining tool during a Tuesday meeting with the Toronto Star's Editorial Board, the Star reports.

Fehr told the board that the longer the NHL lockout lasts, the more likely the players will question the league's salary cap.

“If this goes on for an extended period of time, I don’t know what they (the players) are going to do. But I think it’s safe to say, they would be exploring all options,” said Fehr.

He added the players can live with salary cap if an agreement can be reached quickly.

Fehr is scheduled to be in New York on Wednesday to resume discussions on non-core CBA issues such as medical benefits and pensions.
