I agree that there seemed to be some of this "foot dragging", perhaps a little by both parties that was used as leverage to get a deal done before the current CBA expires.

I for one, think that's exactly the reason why Fehr was saying they'd play under the old CBA, not to mention it makes the league look like bad guys for imposing a lockout.

I'd like to see a clause in the new CBA that a subsequent CBA is completed prior to the expiration of the previous one or BOTH NHL and NHLPA are held accountable to their fans via some kind of penalty (i.e. they have to keep playing but all ticket prices are 25% off or something)
