Nah, the NHLPA lost last time. They ended up making more money than ever and were able to get the UFA age lowered with arbitration rights. C'mon the NHLPA has done nothing but give.

It is probably the owners that have given more, with the "make whole" concession. Everyone knew going into this CBA negotiation that the players were going to take a haircut on their share of HRR. It's ridiculous that it has taken this long to get to this point simply because Donald Fehr refused to negotiate from within the established framework of the CBA. A framework the owners were never going to give up.

All Fehr did was cost NHLPA members money in lost salary.
