I can't remember the exact circumstance, but it was a union-wide process after the last lockout ... the idea being that they wanted someone in place who wouldn't take such a loss on their behalf at the next bargaining session, which explains Fehr's tactics thus far. They saw what he had done for the players in the other major sports, and wanted the same thing. Now, with the change of heart, one has to wonder if it's sheer frustration in wanting to get back on the ice, or if it's the new generation of players having a different outlook than did the ones in 2005.
