It's not specifically about how to handle the lost games of this season. So I'm not sure why you're conflating the two?
3. If having a deal is a priority, then the owners are just as at fault for not agreeing to play under the old CBA, as proposed by the Union, as the Union is for not negotiating during the old one. I think most agree that either side would have been dumb to take either action.
The difference? 11 Months ago vs 3 months ago.

From the NHLPA to the Canadian Parliament in a letter to MP's

Negotiations could have continued while games were played. It did not have to come to this."
Why is it that they are the only one who continue to bring the no-negotiating up? Why do they never mention that they refused to negotiate 11 months ago? Tell me, when was the last time you heard the NHL make that complaint?
