Kukla's Korner Hockey

Today, the NHLPA will hold the first of two huge conference calls. (The second is scheduled for next Sunday.) Any player can join the discussion. And, if they are truly serious about the future of their association; truly upset about Paul Kelly’s firing, there will be a huge turnout.
What’s clear is that canning him at 3 a.m. – as staunch union supporter Chris Chelios repeatedly asked everyone to sleep on it – made Kelly a sympathetic figure. (By the way, credit to Chelios and Shawn Horcoff for facing the media when both their teams voted against firing Kelly.) Initially, several players who disagreed with the process said they still felt the reasons for firing him were sound. Now, that rationale is under attack.
