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 revenue and profit is one example.
Did you get to vote on the new bridge? or Carbon tax? or the gun registry? or fast ferries?

Do you think you live in a democracy?

The NHLPA voted a leadership to represent them, if you aren't going to follow their lead and listen to their advice you shouldn't have voted them in.
