I agree that I haven't seen a smidgen of give from the NHL. Understanding of course, that the CBA that the league has operated with for the last eight seasons is CENTER. Not halfway between the difference of both sides' proposals.

The PA gets blame too. Not negotiating when they could. Hiring Fehr. Interpreting every act of the NHL as an attack on them. The NHL's concerns ARE valid and need to be treated thus.

And then we get this crap today... Well,whatever.
