The NHL’s owners and players are close to compromising on the issues but still miles away from a new collective bargaining agreement, and that’s because this lockout is not about the issues.

It’s about the owners’ resentment toward Don Fehr, executive director of the NHL players’ association, and their belief that he is responsible for this week’s blowup in negotiations. Their resulting reluctance to re-engage means the players may have lost — for good — the owners most crucial to jump-starting the talks in Manhattan last Tuesday.
