When you think logically the players would be smart to negotiate this current CBA and then take a vote to decertify immediately after the expiry of the new CBA.

The twisted reality of sports unions is they exist almost solely for the benefit of the owners.

As a player the limited benefit you get to belonging to a union (suspensions appeals, etc.) is offset by the restrictive conditions of a CBA.

Players are much better off going at on their own and letting agents hash out the conditions of their individual employment
I know the first thing I always think when I look at a NHLPA player driving by in their Hotwheels probably on their way to the soup kitchens, is how hard they're done by . Must be terrible.
