If you cave into that that quickly your employer will take advantage of you further down the line.
Hockey players don't have "further down the line". For most, this will be the only CBA negotiation they will be a part of. Over half of all NHL players play less than 100 NHL games in their career. Only 4% dress for more than 1000 games. Over 60% of the current members of the NHLPA won't be around in 7 years.
