That's a pretty dramatic oversimplifying of events. MLB owners approved a salary cap and other dramatic changes, then decided to spring that and almost immediately declare an impasse (unilaterally imposing that as the CBA). The idea of an impasse and unilateral imposition had to do with talks breaking down when good faith negotiations have been at least attempted by ownership, and the manner in which it was done didn't pass that test.
That's not the situation here. The NHL has at least made overtures and presented deals, while the PA is sitting around doing nothing.
