The PA promptly

So I simply don't know what the PA's end game is, or if they even
one. I'm coming to believe that the PA is viewing this negotiation far too emotionally -- they felt they gave up a ton in 2005 and Bettman ended up beating the crap out of them and they will be
if they let that happen again. It's clouding their judgment; they're showing that they're willing to watch the whole thing burn down around them than "lose" again.
I don't know how this legacy of mutual distrust and animosity between the NHL and NHLPA will ever be repaired.
