I don't think that time is January 11, but Uncle Gary might disagree with me.
I don't think NHL has used the phrase "final offer" at any point. In a negotiation there are "best offers" and that doesn't mean it's a final offer. Just the best that they can offer at that point. Those change as negotiations drag on over months.
In a negotiation there is a certain amount of posturing. You claim you can't go any further even though you can. It's part of the game. Everything has to be viewed through that lens.
