from Stan Fischler at the Hockey Journal,
● Peace between the NHL and the new Russian-based Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) is possible but a high NHL team official tells us that it requires an understanding of the thought process in Moscow. “The Russians are not simple,” the man tells us. “They do things differently and can make life complicated.” In candid conversations between NHL bigs and their Russian counterparts, the latter were told straight out: “We can work together and respect each other’s contracts and, down the road, we could possibly have a joint union of leagues. Or, we can go to war!”
● Speaking of war, if there’s to be major NHL-NHLPA friction it will not be caused by union boss Paul Kelly. But those who’ve watched his belligerent style believe that Glenn Healy will be the prime anti-league spokesman within the Association.
