The whole strength of the NHLPA comes from the fact that it isn't just the stars.
Some of the players are actually a bad thing. Players like Prust and co. have been the problem more often than not. The ones who are bottom 6'ers, making less money have had more of a problem with the negotiations (at least going by public commentary) then those who are making more money or are stars. The players that usually want to get the deal done instead of getting everything they want are those making big money, older players on the verge of retiring, and players that have more sense than ego.

The players are divided just as the owners are, but with Fehr at the helm, as long as the players that want to fight to the death outnumber the ones who want to settle, there will not be a deal.
