Fehr About To Start Working

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

The long courtship of Donald Fehr by the NHL Players’ Association is coming to an end and the official announcement could come as early as Friday, according to an NHL source with close ties to the union….

Once Fehr takes office, his to-do list may not have a long number of tasks but each of them is time-consuming. Negotiations for a new collective agreement to replace the one that expires in 2012 is at the top of the list, followed by items like hiring a second-in-command who will be Fehr’s designated successor and revitalizing a membership beaten down by losing the lockout in 2005 and then getting slapped down on a regular basis by NHL owners and management.
