People forget the support Goodenow had and how his willingness to protract that negotiaition got him canned. Players cannot afford to play lawyer games.
Like it or not, the NHL (and a number of others) don't appear to get that the players have tied their fortunes onto Don Fehr. He will leave voluntarily at some point. Not so sure Mr Bettman's future looks that bright.
