Having been involved in labour negotiations before, IMO the NHLPA missed the golden opportunity, the window to October 25. They really have no leverage going forward, this was the best offer in terms of the % of revenue, which shouldn't really be as big of an issue as it is for the NHLPA, much more concerning should be contract limits, escrow, free agency and who/what counts toward the salary cap. All the other details could have been negotiated, but the NHLPA is doing surgery with a jackhammer instead of a scalpel. They will not get a better offer and unless they are going to create their own league, no leverage.
