Dont buy it.

Fehr isnt relaying everything because he doesnt want a deal. Hes stalling until the NHL gives up and cancels the season and then he will be going after the cap. Book it. The only way we see hockey this season is if the players catch on to this before the NHL gives up, and force Fehr's hand to make a deal.
Why would Fehr be carrying out his own agenda? He's not being paid during the lockout and all he needs to do is appease the current membership. He's probably not going to be there for the next CBA anyway, so other than the NHLPA's history with executive directors, what would indicate it's happening now? How does he benefit?

The PA also has a recent history of not being afraid to fire executive directors. I mean, they fired the last guy for getting along with Bettman too well, and they weren't even negotiating.
