edit: Also, it puts stupid pressure on the NHLPA to just sign the deal as is. There's no way this deal gets signed as is. Only a fool would think that, I doubt even the NHL thinks it would be signed as is even if they genuinely think they have made significant concessions to the players.

Saying "balls in your court, better sign it now!" is dumb. What the players need to do is talk to Fehr and decide what they want to do, and then go out and negotiate in good faith with Bettman and the owners. There are certainly aspects of this that still need to be negotiated even if the NHLPA does like it in general
