Fehr is the players hired representative in these labour negotiations. If you seriously thought the players would have agreed to a deal without him in the room, then that's beyond naive.

The fact that the league broke off talks the second the players said they wanted Fehr back in just goes to show how they never planned on negotiating in good faith. You don't get to choose your negotiating partners; the league is going to have get over it's fear and disdain of Fehr and sit down and stop acting like a bunch of greedy and spoiled babies.

Daly's already come out and said contracting rights are 'the hill the leagues ready to die on.' So you can stop pretending they'll readily come down on their hard line stance.
