Just what the league needs...

The NHL Players Association, which has known it's share of turmoil in recent years, met with Donald Fehr to get some suggestions and thoughts about running it's union.

Does anyone else think this might not be the best guy to meet with? The baseball model is what the NHL has successfully abandoned. The revenue streams in the NHL are a fraction of what they are in MLB. Personally, I think it's easy to dislike Fehr - anyone that thinks that illegal drug use should be a bargaining chip in negotiations is someone that I don't agree with.

Hopefully the NHLPA was just getting some advice on the organizational structure of their union and some ideas on how best to run it, and not strategy on tactics and how to proceed. The NHL can ill afford to go back down the path of the Rangers spending way too much.
