What Paul Kelly Must Do

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Kelly’s to-do list must begin with making certain the players get what they are entitled to under the current CBA.

On top, he needs to find a way to keep some 700 members interested enough in the process so that the league no longer views then as little more than mobile skate racks (mostly of the unheated variety). Do that and the union will be on track to handle the next negotiation with the kind of unity the management might respect.
