It was a take it or leave it offer and the 100 million was not a 100 million it was 50 million in the pension plan...

The players had already accepted the money portion.....but had not agreed to the other components of the deal....the NHL presented it as always as their final offer, take it or leave it and the PA rather then say no....they tried to come to terms on a New CBA by giving the owners their idea of a deal they could accept and the NHL told them .....no and then took their ball and went home.
