I never said that they should accept any of the NHL proposals. I am just saying if he actually wanted to get a deal done in time for a full season he would have met with the NHL sooner than a few months before training camp.
Fehr used that as leverage and now he is hurting the NHLs overall health as a league which is going to hurt both parties. If they would have hired someone with a brain half as big as Fehrs ego we would be watching hockey right now.
I dont feel sorry for the players. They should have hired someone that was focused on finding common ground and making a deal that worked for both sides.
Bottom line. I believe if there was no Fehr there would be no lockout. Do you really believe otherwise?
