NHL Players In Control Of Donald Fehr’s Fate

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It now falls on the rank and file of NHL players to determine in what kind of world they would like to live in the wake of the revelations exposing the institutional betrayal of Kyle Beach, who identified himself this week as the “John Doe” at the epicenter of the investigation of the Blackhawks.

It falls on the players themselves — not on Gary Bettman, not on Don Fehr, not on the law firm of Jenner & Block — to determine whether they wish to be a part of a Players’ Association that failed to protect Beach, or to forge a new direction under new leadership whose mission will be to place each union member’s health and safety as its highest priority.

There is no question the Chicago organization and NHL failed Beach, whose allegations of sexual abuse by the club’s then-video coach, Brad Aldrich, were set aside for a more convenient time back in 2010 when the Blackhawks were aiming at their first Stanley Cup in 49 years. That convenient time never quite seemed to come. But let’s face it. The business of business is to protect itself.
