Yes, the collective-bargaining process in professional sports has pretty much run its course, as the guy says in the article. The negotiations are all now essentially about money and nothing more, so there's really nothing there for a union to "protect" anymore. The owners basically get more than the players from a union at this point -- without a union, there's no salary cap, no draft, etc.
Decertification is by far the players' best weapon at this point in the face of such relentless intransigence . Unlike the NBA and NFL who, despite the negotiating rhetoric, were always going to make a deal and were never going to lose a season, the NHL is run by reckless and vindictive clowns.
