Before the NHLPA had even filed its memorandum, the labor talks had taken a sour turn, with Larry Brooks of the New York Post reporting on Twitter about a “Belief within PA that Bettman/(NHL lawyer Bob) Batterman pulled bait and switch after initial disclaimer deadline passed.” As Elliotte Friedman of the CBC wrote later in the day, “The players were angered this morning because the HRR package received from the NHL was ‘missing’ some key language. The critical part involved penalties for teams hiding HRR. In 2011, the two sides had a dispute over what was reported by Washington and Nashville, and with such erosion of trust right now, you can imagine the reaction to this. … Even the moderate guys were cheesed, believing this to be proof the NHL is not serious about making a deal right now.”
Two of the teams now deemed as "hardliners". Criminals might be a more adept word.
