No, they never really had a say, but with the cba expiration it was being looked at as a bargaining chip.
I think the cba has just used the word "consult" in terms of the league needing nhlpa input. They don't need nhlpa approval.
The nhlpa voting the last one down didn't stop it in and of itself, it was a ceremonial shot across the bow about the forthcoming cba negotiation. The nhl had bigger things to worry about.
