But seriously, since the NHL is up to a point where the are past the give and take, and that the NHLPA is still trying to stand ground... We would probably be in the same position no matter when they started talking.
You can see for yourself from the NHL's first proposal that they weren't serious until
a month ago
when they presented their first
proposal. You can see from all their previous proposals that they wouldn't have taken any of those negotiations seriously if they happened. And with the league ongoing at that point last season, very little attention would have been given to it at that point.
We'd probably still be here but serious negotiations wouldn't have taken place at that time even if the league was willing.
