Thanks to Liz Mullen and the folks at Sports Business Journal, we have access to the most in-depth article on Bob Goodenow in years.
Take some time out and read it today!
from Liz Mullen at Sports Business Journal (normally a paid sub.),
In retrospect, it’s hard to say when, exactly, Bob Goodenow lost control of his union, but it may have begun in a very innocent way.
In the early days of the 2004-05 hockey lockout Goodenow, the NHL Players’ Association’s executive director, attended all the important bargaining sessions, as did NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. That changed about four months into the work stoppage.
“I think they were both involved in the negotiations for a certain point in time,” said Steve Larmer, a former NHL all-star who was the union employee in charge of player relations during the lockout. “And then Gary wasn’t there, and so [union officials] didn’t want Bob there.”
