Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,
...outright dissention arrived right on schedule Wednesday, as veteran defenceman Roman Hamrlik called out union head Donald Fehr on the Czech web site iSport.cz.
"I am disgusted," Hamrlik told the web site. "We have to push Fehr to the wall to get the deal. Time is against us.
"We lost 1/4 season, it is $425 million. Who will give it back to us? Mr. Fehr? There should be voting between players. Four questions -- YES or NO -- then count it. If half of players say let's play, then they should sign new CBA.
"If there is no season he should leave and we will find someone new. Time is our enemy."
Yes, as if on cue, the war drums officially sounded in the jungle beyond Fehr's office on Nov. 21. And if former players like Bill Guerin and Mike Modano were talking to the media these days, they would echo exactly what former NHLer Chris Therien tweeted the other day, when the old defenceman said that he would have some serious questions for Fehr if Therien were still playing today.
