Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Does anyone believe the NHLPA would stand for the lenient sentences leveled by the league against headhunting concussion-inducing miscreants if a player whose career was destroyed by a series of brain injuries was there to present a case for victims’ rights and safety in the workplace on a daily basis?
Instead there is silence, the silence of the lambs of the NHLPA.
There is no other issue at the moment for the union other than this one. Why can’t advisor Donald Fehr actually advise the players on the critical nature of safety in the workplace? Or maybe the former executive director of the MLBPA thinks the long-terms effects of concussions are as benign as the long-terms effects of taking steroids.
