Sickening, isn't it?
I honestly lost all hope after the fallout 2 weeks ago after making no progress after 20+ hours of meetings.
It seems that the cult way of thinking within the PA will win out and that the moderates will get shut out after Fehr and the hardliners tell them that the NHL outright rejected their supposed "best proposal".
We all know how this will end. The players will lose a season worth of pay, crawl back to the owners probably around this time next season and take a far worse deal. The owners seem more pissed and unified than ever and the PA will realize this all too late. It's quite sad actually.
