NHLPA And Player Agents Met Today

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet,

Quick blog for a Wednesday night:

Last week was the first in-person GM meeting in two years; Wednesday in Toronto, the NHLPA had its first in-person meeting with agents in three. Don’t think there was anything incredibly groundbreaking, but among the topics executive director Donald Fehr was asked by media:

• He wouldn’t reveal anything about a succession plan, saying that is only to be discussed with the players. Fehr will be 74 in July, when a summer meeting is scheduled. There’s expectation he will present something at that time, but nothing concrete (although, again, he would not discuss it with us). While there is no formal “end” to Fehr’s contract, the Executive Board, comprised of the 32 team player representatives, can vote to change leadership. We’ll see where things go over the next few months....

• He’s confident the players will be protected against any revenue losses from the Coyotes’ move to Arizona State’s 5,000-seat arena, saying the NHLPA is in discussions with the NHL about that. The CBA limits what the union can do about the move, but there are agents/staff who have made it clear they wish much harder pushback on this issue.
