Not falling for it one bit.
I understand what you're saying, but until the NHLPA posts up it's counter offers (and I don't expect them to) we have no way of knowing if that is the case.
You're absolutely right that it was orchestrated by the league. In making the terms of their last proposal open to the public, they're essentially leveraging the public opinion into trying to get a deal done; and that is their priviledge.
Considering all the players who have made youtubes, taken to the media and twitter to vent their frustrations at the owners I don't blame them for doing it. In fact it's pure genius. Posting up their offer for all the world to see as if to say; "Am I being unreasonable?"
I'd love for the NHLPA to post up it's counter-offers.
