As someone who is pro-NHLPA, the "fault" rests on no one particular party more than the other.
Players want jobs, that means the NHL must expand.
Where I do find some fault, though, is where the NHL refuses to explore other avenues of cost re-structuring. They keep going back to the same well; the players and their incomes.
If the NHL explored other programs like better redistribution, re-structuring the NHL schedule to have better/more rivalry games, having a cap on management team fees, having playoff games at a larger venue (like the Superbowl with higher ticket prices), etc. I wouldn't find fault in their current debacle.
