Here's the conspiracy theory:
Donald Fehr never intended to make any agreement with the League. His goal was to decertify the NHLPA. Reason? It's been threatened and semi-carried out in other leagues but has never been fully implemented. Perhaps because of too many unknowns, fear of failure, who knows. Perhaps Fehr (on behalf of all the other unionites in professional sport) wanted to use the NHLPA as a guinea pig to see where a decertification of a major-league sports union would end up.
After all, if you're going to do an experiment like this, may as well do it to the least-popular and least-relevant major league sport in the USA.
The NFLPA decertified last year, so it's been done before
