This... basically since the NHLPA hired Fehr then went into strategy mode of self destruction.

Quote from Fehr last year:
Asked if the NHLPA wants this to be a revolutionary agreement or an evolutionary one – in other words, whether the union wants a new system or just adjustments to the current one – Fehr said:
“I’m not prepared to make that judgment yet because the players haven’t made it, and that’s an involved process. But everybody understands that trying to change something radically, unless both sides start from the premise that they want to, is much more problematic in terms of getting an agreement done than not.
Interesting. So even last year, when the NHLPA was refusing to start negotiations, Fehr was well aware that proposing drastic changes to the CBA would be problematic to getting a deal done...
