Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
...we have yet to see if Bettman will actually punish any of these owners for smashing the spirit of the current collective agreement to smithereens. That would be a lot tougher than pounding this sad-sack union one more time.
The NHLPA just got caught in the train tracks here as a group of influential owners pursued an outlaw agenda, specifically the likes of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, Philadelphia Flyers chairman Ed Snider and Detroit Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch.
You wouldn’t include New Jersey owner Jeff Vanderbeek in that influential group, at least not yet. But you would believe that Devils president and GM Lou Lamoriello would include himself as one of Bettman’s staunchest supporters.
