The NHL's position is cost certainty. The NHLPA's position is trust - they dont trust the owners. The NHL stands to continue losing money if a bad agreement is reached. There's no chance the PA will lose money with a bad agreement. They just wouldnt make as much. It seems to me the PA is muscle-flexing more than the NHL.
The NHl won't lose any money if they get a cap because so much damage wil have been done to the game that there will virtually no money coming in. You can't lose any if you don't have any.
