Who the hell has any leverage this year when the season is only about putting out a product, any product, for the tv cameras

That's because the owners, having a disproportionate amount of leverage in a sport where you have 2-5 stars, 5-10 good players, and 30-40 journeymen on the roster.  If you hold out, you lose a season to count towards free agency/pension/insurance/etc.  It screws over a couple dozen players to make the backups happy.

This is also why players need 100% guaranteed contracts like other sports.  If you get hurt, there's a good chance you're not seeing the rest of that contract you weren't allowed to hold out to renegotiate.

Looks like the players should fire whoever negotiated the latest collective agreement.

The players should not have agreed to it.
