Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Fehr-to-the-NHLPA saga seems to have been resolved, or has it? With the vote on accepting Fehr apparently going to the membership, most of the media coverage centred on Fehr’s fearsome reputation as at the Major League Baseball Players Association.
But key Fehr elements have been missed so far by the media. First, the supposedly implacable Fehr settled a collective bargaining agreement with MLB in 2002 without any work stoppage - and well before the eleventh hour. Second, we have yet to see the report commissioned by the NHLPA about Paul Kelly’s dismissal released to the press. Is Fehr’s role in the midnight massacre discussed? Before players vote, should they not see the contents of the report that was delayed at Fehr’s suggestion?
