If they were committed to seeing the NHL 12-13 season happen, we would be reading about negotiation attempts at least once a week. They're busy signing to the KHL and SEL rather than pushing for ice hockey in North America.

And with Fehr dealing with the rest of it, nothing is going to change.

I know a lot of people are pro-NHLPA, but when I see most super star players that this thread has listed (Datsyuk, Kovalchuk, Thornton, Malkin, Nash, Lundqvist, Jagr, Selanne, etc.) giving up and already considering signing else where, it doesn't show me they were committed to the negotiation process.
As timmeh above me said, many of these players are playing for free or for some ridiculous amount of money. As far as I know: in Kladno Jagr plays for free and without insurance, Plekanec plays for 1 czech crown (= 5 american cents).
