NHLPA Would Be Stronger With Fehr In Charge

from Jeff Z. Klein and Stu Hackel of Slapshot at the NY Times,

Many players and agents want (Donald) Fehr to become the union’s executive director.

Aaron Voros, the Rangers’ player representative, said last week that it would be a “no brainer” to have Fehr heading the union.

Pat Brisson, who represents Sidney Crosby and several other stars, said: “Someone like him, with all his experience, brings in a breath of fresh air. When you have a chance to spend time with him, you feel privileged.”

The union and Fehr have come a long way since November. He was newly retired from a 26-year tenure as leader of the Major League Baseball Players Association, the strongest union in sports, and the only one in North America to successfully resist a salary cap.
