Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman & Tim Wharnsby of CBC,
The number one reaction to the NHLPA’s 19-3 vote in favour of forming a players committee to review the entire organization has been disappointment.
This sentiment was expressed because most players and agents felt that the Chris Chelios-led conference on Sunday evening was an extremely important step in rebuilding the tattered union.
But eight player reps either did not partake in the call or did not vote, leaving Chelios one vote short of the necessary 20 and three shy of the 25 required for a quorum.
Under the new NHLPA constitution, players can still cast a vote up to 72 hours after the conference call.
The speculation is that Chelios will eventually get his desired result.
