Kukla's Korner Hockey

On Thursday, NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow sent a message to everyone, saying he likes his job and has a contract and plans to continue doing his job. So if there are people within the NHLPA who don't want Goodenow to lead them, they better organize themselves and go straight at him because he sent a message that he's not going anywhere. That's what we were all waiting to see. What kind of mood would Goodenow be in? Would it be Bombastic Bob? Would it be Bitter Bob? In fact, it was a very cagey, diplomatic and gracious Bob in terms of his dealings with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and virtually everyone else at the news conference. Appearances can be deceiving sometimes and we don't really know what's going on internally at the NHLPA right now but we've heard some talk within the NHLPA that maybe they would do well to have someone else who is not a wartime leader who can form that partnership with Gary Bettman going forward.
