Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Stan Fischler at the Hockey Journal,
Paul Kelly (Newton Highlands, Mass.) should be reinstated as executive director of the NHL Players’ Association. That is because he is the best man available for the job.
And he is better than anybody that the bumbling union could possibly sign on for more millions of dollars. The resignation en masse of the anti-Kelly bloc underlines an important point.
The plot to oust Kelly has been exposed. Unfortunately, his illegal ouster took place before the plotters resigned from their assorted NHLPA posts. That includes Ron Pink and Ian Penny. Finally, on Sunday, Buzz Hargrove, the so-called ombudsman, also resigned from the NHLPA.
Even though Don Fehr has been brought aboard as a consultant to the NHLPA, that should not mean that Kelly cannot be reinstated. That is unless Fehr is stupid, jealous or influenced by Penny; which we fear.
