Fehr Talks Realignment And CBA

Some of the NHL’s hot topics were up for discussion on Wednesday when NHL Players’ Association executive director Donald Fehr joined host James Cybulski on Cybulski and Company on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto.

In the days following the announcement of the league’s proposed realignment, Cybulski asked Fehr how the Players’ Association is reacting the news of a new four-conference format.

“As a general matter we think this needs to be negotiated with us. But hopefully we’ll be able to do that,” said Fehr.

“You want to look at how the travel affects players on all the teams, you want to look at the playoff picture and how that will be affected,” continued Fehr. “On a percentage basis, (we want to look at) whether it’s significantly more or less likely in a division or conference that somebody is going to be able to make the playoffs than others.”

Fehr explained that the players would also like some of the background that led to the decision shared with them.
