Kukla's Korner Hockey

It’s been obvious since the lockout ended two years ago that the PA was in serious need of internal housecleaning. Constitutional changes allowing the players more input into PA decisions, especially in labor negotiations, appear to be a positive step.
But it’ll take more than changing the constitution for the NHLPA to move forward.
The priority will have to be on not only healing the rifts within the PA ranks, but also to ensure there is more interest in PA business by its membership in the coming years.
Recently there’s been some media concern that the PA, under a new executive director, could bring the current CBA to an end in 2009 by exercising its right to re-open labor talks with the league if the membership believes the CBA is no longer working for them.
Possible, but highly unlikely.
