Fehr wants to meet because he has zero intention of giving anything up but think he might milk another concession out of the owners. NHL knows this and that's why they want Fehr to clarify why he wants to meet if he insists upon it.
The bolded is the point I'm trying to make. The only person who knows for sure whether or not Fehr is going to actually negotiate is Fehr; Daly is flat out stating that they aren't even going to meet if they don't get a favorable read on the situation. That's not negotiating.

Do you take a lot of meetings to go over nothing?
The NHL says a lot of things, as does the PA; however, I've never heard or seen the PA state "We aren't willing to negotiate further. That was our last, best offer," as the NHL has.
