By waiting until the last minute, these guys have cut their noses off to spite their faces.
As I said above earlier, lawyers can always perfect language written language at a later time, when there is time to construct contracts carefully and without errors. Inside a week? It simply cannot be done. This issue will have to waived by both sides, otherwise we can forget hockey this season.
Fehr will keep moving the Goal posts; till the players are close to keeping much of what they had.
Problem is the NHL owners won't sign that CBA.
The whole pension plan thing I think is not really an issue, it's a negotiating tactic. They solve one issue, but that issue crops up again at a later date. It's all part of the game.
I am sure before the 11th hour, Make whole will be asked to be increased again.
