Because every NHL proposal so far has been take it or leave it, yes or no. The NHL has been very stoic about trying not to negotiate at all.
However, since they have used the ultimatum technique everytime they present an offer, yet then proceed to back-track and come back a few days later with a better, revised take it or leave it offer.
That seems to suggest, if you want to take the time to see the pattern emerging, that they basically are going to continue to cede ground so long as the PA keeps turning down the ultimatum offer and insisting on negoatiating.

I'm not sure how you've managed to miss the obvious, but apparently you did.
