Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
What they need is someone with a hockey background who has played on both sides of the street. The best-case scenario is that he’s a lawyer, has worked in the NHL front office, must have held an executive position with an NHL team to understand the players’ needs, and has to be strong enough and knows enough about what goes on within league ranks to play on a level field with Bettman.
He has to know what is needed by the players, know what the game itself needs to grow.
The man I have in mind who is eminently qualified for the post is out there. Trouble is, nobody associated with the NHLPA’s search committee is aware of it.
Don’t ask me who I would go after. If I told you, I’d have to kill you.
