Kukla's Korner Hockey

There may be more than a tentative labour deal to sort out during NHL player meetings this week. Throughout the NHL lockout, there were stories that some players were more involved behind the scenes than others. And perhaps without the blessing of their union leadership. Not true, says Chris Pronger. The St. Louis Blues player representative insists rumours of him, Jarome Iginla, Robert Esche and Jeremy Roenick getting directly involved in February are greatly exaggerated. "What Jeremy Roenick has been doing? I don't talk to him so I don't know," Pronger said before a player rep meeting Wednesday. "I did talk to Iginla and Esche but I talked to a lot of other players as well." According to some reports in mid-February, the four players tried to broker a deal behind the union's back. Roenick was quoted in the Inquirer at the time saying the four players had called NHL chief legal officer Bill Daly directly. Pronger scoffs at the notion he was doing anything untoward.
