I find it funny that with how far they got (basically everything was okay including money, the two biggest issues reported were length of the agreement and contract limits, both of which were very close), Fehr decided to negotiate off of NHL's offer, which was take it or leave it, instead of putting it up for a vote.
From the sound of things, the PA would have likely accepted the proposed NHL deal, but it seems he's not looking out for the players.
All of the major concessions in these "negotiations" have been made by the players. The owners haven't negotiated in good faith from the start. Nearly everything has been of the "take it or leave it" variety.

The whole thing is a freaking joke.
