Is Saskin The Man

via Larry Brooks of the NY Post (reg. req.),
At this moment in time, is the NHLPA better served by anointing Saskin, with whom the league clearly has a close working relationship and whose candidacy Sixth Avenue clearly endorses, or is the union better served under the leadership of an independent counsel who will adopt a more traditionally adversarial approach with the overseers? If, as it now appears, the primary responsibility of the NHLPA is to prod the league into more aggressive and effective revenue-generating marketing campaigns, is it or is it not beneficial for the union to be led by an individual who's less likely to be a critical outside agitator? This, rather than simply the final escrow number — which a growing number of people on the union side now believe the league will find a way to tweak in order to keep to a single digit, thus aiding Saskin — is the underlying critical area for the players to consider.
