Not allowing a single vote on any NHL offer 3 months into the lockout is
that the nhlpa is not democratic, and is not representing the views of the majority of players.
Frankly I doubt if any "moderate" members of the NHLPA involved with the negotiations even understand the issues being discussed. The widespread confusion about the correct usage of the terms
is one example.
The negotiating team hasn't had an offer to bring to the membership....what are they supposed to vote on? When the negotiating committee has a deal they can recommend for a vote, they'll put it forward for a vote.
If "moderate" members don't understand the issues perhaps they should educate themselves, they're invited to participate. If I was on the negotiating committee I wouldn't want an uneducated membership deciding my future.
