Kukla's Korner Hockey

Members of the NHL Players' Association will gather at a Toronto hotel today to learn about the collective bargaining agreement the group's executives have negotiated with the league. They'll be briefed on the finer points of the salary cap and free agency, learn the details of qualifying offers and entry-level contracts. And when they're not listening, some of the players figure to have a few words for NHLPA executive director Bob Goodenow. They'll be looking to let him, and the rest of the NHLPA hierarchy, know what they think of the proposed CBA. Which, in a lot of cases, isn't much. At least a few NHLPA members, angry that their leaders abandoned their core belief that a salary cap and linkage between revenues and payrolls were unacceptable under any circumstances, are expected to vent during the meeting.
