Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Rick Westhead of the Toronto Star,
Now, more than 40 years on, Wirtz says he’s poised to sever ties to the NHL charter member. One of the most vilified owners in sports – he’s been nicknamed “Dollar Bill” for his alleged thriftiness when it came to player salaries – Wirtz says he’s worried about who the NHL Players’ Association hires as its next leader.
After losing $31 million (all figures U.S.) this season and $191 million over the past 10 on the beleaguered Blackhawks, Wirtz said if the players union hires someone cut out of the mould of Bob Goodenow as executive director, he’ll hang up a for-sale sign on the Blackhawks.
