The NHL's top lawyer, Bill Daly, said on a Toronto radio station last week the league was willing to negotiate the triggers and would have been willing to play two full seasons under the union proposal before determining whether it was working. This to those people who thought the proposal was a 'trap' with triggers being hit immediately. Like I said earlier, it didn't make any sense and this proves it, NHL was willing to try to PA's proposal for two years before any triggers. Makes perfect sense to me and it was a very good proposal by NHL, PA should have tried to negotiate those triggers (which NHL was willing to do) instead of coldly rejecting it. NHLPA makes itself look worse and worse everyday and NLRB shouldn't have any problems determining who's the bad guy here.
