Do you not understand negotiations, you're SUPPOSED to start there. Had the PA agreed to start negotiating during the season, we'd be two months ahead of where we are now.
You're forgetting the NHL blew up a season to get that "terrible" CBA. Forgetting that owners were signing contracts under that horrible system until the last possible second. The players didn't forget how Bettman is a weasel at the table. He opened with that jerk off offer and told everyone "I lockout first, negotiate second". If the NHL is so hellbent on bargaining, they can make an offer since they pulled the last one. Whoa, they made one whole offer more. They're saints. Let's credit them for making a reasonable offer after a slap in the face. If it's universally understood that initial offer was counter productive, why are we blaming the pa for their reaction?
