What's important to note is that the NHLPA's ridiculous incompetence has led to the deadline being so close. The league couldn't have even attempted to begin lying framework for a deal with the PA until about January of this year because the NHLPA has been one giant political cluster**** of ridiculous proportions since the last lockout. They've had several different heads, constant political infighting, repeated selection of completely incompetent and unqualified individuals, and have just been more or less a joke of an organization for years. Until they wised up and hired Fehr, they couldn't have even had a discussion with the league because they didn't have anyone who was smart enough to even pick up the phone to call the league offices, much less be able to start collectively bargaining.
