Just give the owners what they want here and move on to other issues that affect a majority of NHLPA members (the star players who get these deals will still get their big $$). Use this as another chip in the game as you negoitiate for something more meaningful.
I dont know, this was one of the hills they would die on. why would they be willing to die on a hill that affects so few players ? I'm not an experienced negotiator but I don't understand why you would go into a negotiation and say that these two items are where we draw the line and dig in, when implementing one of the two gets the same result. Ooooooooh, I think I just answered my own question.
