Fehr's job is to get the best deal for the players in this new CBA. By waiting, he's doing that. Yes, it's costing them money now, but it's helping the players situation with regards to this new CBA.

I don't understand how people can claim the players should just accept whatever new proposal the NHL throws at them simply because "they're losing money now".

Yes, they're losing money now. And they're attempting to make sure they don't lose money in the future as well. By accepting a deal that's less than favorable, they would be doing just that.
