If I can make something of a defense for the Campolis, Hainseys and Darches of the negotiations, I'm sure many of them believe they're serving a cause that extends beyond their NHL careers, and see it as a chance to do something for the future players of the league, a la Lindsay and Harvey.
That's the only logical conclusion I can come to as well. These guys, including Malhotra, and several others on the negotiating commitee would have done best by accepting the first offer.
