No they are clueless and it was one of my first points.

The PA would have been better off taking a slightly worse deal with no lockout and therefore no lose in HRR then getting a slightly higher % after a lockout and losing lots of HRR.

It's clear they aren't thinking smartly, they waited until the last possible moment to negotiate, they hired someone who is famous for work stoppages that accomplish nothing, and they are now bargining as if the past CBA is in effect, as if the 04 lockout matters and as if the country is in secure and booming economic times.

In the NBA I saw players fire their union head and get a deal done because they clearly saw that is was better for them to make their own deal and not have some middle man make one of them and that a sooner deal was better then a later deal. Who would have ever thought NBA players much smarter then NHL players.
