How is it good faith if their most recent offer is worse than the one 15 months ago (which was a tremendous laugher in itself)? They're just jerking the NHL around, and it's pretty obvious they're not serious about anything.

The NHL is trying to get a deal that would be good for the league, the fans, the sport itself, and also very fair to the players.

The players want a deal for themselves. That's it. It won't help the fans, and salaries will continue to increase to where they don't deserve to be. They're suffering from Al MacInnis syndrome. Just because pro atheletes in other sports make trillions a year doesn't mean they do. And there are very clear reasons for that.
