The NHL put the cart before the horse.
That’s how NHLPA Executive Director Paul Kelly responded mere minutes after the National Hockey League announced the Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers will open the 2008 regular season in Prague and Stockholm.
The Players Association hasn’t approved the agreement and Kelly was surprised by the announcement the New York Rangers will also participate in the Victoria Cup. Although unlikely, Kelly says the players may not agree to play, “There is a chance we wouldn’t consent,” Kelly added….
“If they want us to be a true business partner, then they need to include us from the beginning,” Kelly concluded.
