NHLPA Should Have Talked With Crosby Before Firing Kelly

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

He’s been voted the most powerful person in hockey by the Hockey News. He’s one of the few players whose name transcends the sport. His opinion matters, perhaps more than any player in hockey.

But when the NHLPA fired its executive director, Paul Kelly, on Monday, Sidney Crosby said he wasn’t consulted.

“I woke up the next day and saw the news like the rest,” Crosby told SportingNews.com.

That’s a huge lapse in judgment by the players on the executive board. It was a decision that happened in the middle of the night, so maybe they were sparing Crosby a 4:00 a.m. phone call.
