Dear Mr. Kelly

from Mark Spector of the National Post,

...Because most hockey players come from communities where, if someone’s dad made $150,000, that family was considered wealthy.

Remember that, Mr. Kelly, if the time ever comes where you advise 700 players to start missing pay cheques that are in the neighbourhood of US$1.5-million per season.

But that’s enough advice from a sports writer, Mr. Kelly. If you take the job as leader of NHLPA, you’ll have no shortage of that.

Listen less to those voices and more to hockey fans. Canadian ones in particular, who deserve an economic system like the one in place today, where Calgary and Edmonton can compete on a level playing field with Toronto.
