Eloquently said. And that goes for both sides, too.

For the NHL, reducing the Players' % of HRR was the end-goal. Until an agreement in principle on that was made. Now it's term limits, masqueraded around as this noble idea of preventing cap circumvention, even though variance limits and a cap reconciliation program take care of that issue just fine.

For the NHLPA, it was Make Whole. Once the NHL budged on Make Whole, it was "Actually, contract issues are the most important thing to us". Once the NHL walked away from certain contract demands, it was "Actually, the pension plan is the biggest thing."

It's all a game. Are we even at the 11th hour yet? The actions from both sides would suggest no.
