Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of The Spin at the Toronto Star,
If the NHLPA really wants to open a PR offensive, it should have individual players openly questioning the motives of individual owners. Just slamming Gary Bettman will never work. He's paid to take the crap. But if Brad Richards starts questioning why James Dolan needs to have a lockout, or if Claude Giroux takes some verbal swings at Ed Snider, or if Zdeno Chara challenges Jeremy Jacobs to explain himself, it might turn public pressure on those owners in the same way it used to do in the pre-cap era when owners were often questioned for not spending enough. Blaming Bettman for a third lockout - like the PA had nothing at all to do with all three - won't get the union anywhere if it wants to wage a propaganda war.
