I guess you could consider it "trying harder" for the NHLPA since they finally put a full, formal offer on the table after 6 months. But really, the NHL at this point is basically doing to the PA what was done to them over the last few months, make them negotiate against themselves.

It's really a race to the bottom now. NHL tried hardest while NHLPA did pretty much zilch for a few months. Now it seems NHLPA is more eager to get a deal done. But it's too little, too late for both of them.

They weren't up to the task. Two guys using 90s negotiation tactics clashed and it ended with pathetic inability to find a solution.

There is a pretty big difference between players getting $1.91B with at least 1.75% guaranteed raises and what the NHLPA proposed now. The lack of guaranteed raises makes it a different beast and the players share is significantly lower in year 1. The guarantee will still be unacceptable to owners since the principle of sharing the risks of the work stoppage is important to them.

Really, really inappropriate thing to say in my opinion. Clearly the scope and the framing of this issue has gotten completely out of control for many people.
Then, Lets hope they don't come for you !!!! *S*

Try to understand the metaphor

Seems to have run its course. Please pick up the discussion in the lockout thread.
