The bottom line is some players would like to urge the Players Association to quickly present a proposal that will engage the league and get back to the negotiating table. There is a sense of restlessness growing among certain guys and the same can probably be said among some owners. This has led to some players reaching out to Donald Fehr on their own searching for answers.
Union Executive Donald Fehr is not going to wake up one day and decide today is the day he’s going to get a deal done. Until the players tell him to get a deal done, there won’t be NHL hockey. It would also help if the owners would be willing to negotiate, but the truth is Donald Fehr will not get a deal done until the player’s tell him to do so.

Fehr isn't the long term PA exec director. He will help the PA find his replacement.

Bettman has been around since 1993. How many years does he have left as NHL commissioner? Whenever they get a new CBA,it will be a 5-7 year deal. Do you see Bettman being around to negotiate the next CBA? Hopefully someone else will be running the NHL at that time.
