What about the NHL offer is extreme? Every part has a legitimate reason.
Did the players write their own contracts them and forge Leipold's signature?
They were signed in good faith.
I will never understand individuals expecting players to just roll back their salaries, can you imagine that happening to you by your employer? I know I wouldn't really be keen on it happening.
Anyway, timelines are inconsequential as well. We're all well aware of the ramifications of delaying, but there certainly hasn't been a palpable sense of urgency despite how long it took the PA to get to the table.
