They are. And that fits in nicely with MoreOrr's point.
To answer MoreOrr's question, I believe the the NHLPA has an internal deadline in mind and will continue to try to squeeze the rock dry until then. The negotiating committee will not send a NHL proposal to formal vote unless they believe that proposal is the very best they can get (deadloss aside).
You're right. There's no way for the NHLPA will know if a better deal can be made. It's a game of chicken right now. Does the NHL want to risk nuclear war by putting a worse offer on the table? The NHLPA is betting no at this point.
