The best offer would have come before Sept 15 had the PA wanted to actually negotiate. They could have had everything the NHL has offered (and still willing to give) and then some (some escrow protection as things are stepped down or for a temporary decrease in revenue during the CBA term etc). And done it all while not costing the players hundreds of millions they will never get back.
Yet here we are and Fehr is still asking only for upward linkage and various schemes to have money going to the players outside the system.
