Hockey Or Resign

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

If Bettman and Fehr legitimately understand anything about the ethic of the game, then they know about the aforementioned price of failure too.

Fail too often, and especially fail too often in the big moment, and soon enough, somebody else will get their turn.

It’s a ruthless, but fair system, when the stakes are so high. Real hockey people would know the rules going in, and accept them for what they are.

So a modest proposal that echoes comments made by the Florida Panthers’ Kris Versteeg about Bettman and the Washington Capitals’ Roman Hamrlik about Fehr and their respective job futures this past week:

If the two leaders are ultimately unable to come to terms on a new CBA in time to save the 2012-13 season, then both should immediately resign from their respective positions when the cancellation becomes official.

And more importantly, they should pledge their willingness to do so, publicly, now, in the third week of November, before all hope is lost.
