But the players won't even negotiate with the NHL. They are sticking with their stupid 3+1 year deal. The NHL will never accept the NHLPA's structure. The players will make $0 next year and will never be able to make up for that loss, the NHL revenues will fall if there is a lockout and if they somehow get 57% of the revenues in the next CBA after a lost season, the players 57% will probably be lower than if they just accept a CBA tomorrow near what the NHL is offereing.

Losing 7-9% next season is much better for the players than trying to "win".
