Idiots. They deserve what they get.
Remember the Alfredsson quote? He was terrified that past NHL proposals would come to a vote, as they were likely to garner a significant share of votes if not pass outright. But those proposals didn't jive with what a select portion of the union wanted, so they did everything to prevent a vote. Supposedly nothing can come to a vote unless the Fehrs allow it. There's no end-around for players that just want to get back on the ice. There's no mandatory process that forces the Fehrs to put a proposal to a vote.
