The only fantasy is that the offers from the NHL are getting better. The players are losing more money then they will ever get back in the next CBA. They have already agreed to 50/50 and lower contract rights. Waiting for another 15% of their salary to disappear for an additional year or 2 in contract rights won't make the NHL offer "better".

The best way for the players to win is to grow the HRR as high as possible. Then they will get the raises that they want. Reducing HRR by holding out to get a few extra contracting years isn't the way to make more money.
