    Well, now it is the 29th. What do they have left, two days, before Europe locks their rosters for the season, to make a deal that both sides can agree upon, and get some key players back?


    He should have gotten involved long before this. All of them should have. This is ridiculous timing on their parts.

    Locking the Lounge??
    Didn't TSN report that a couple of days ago?


    Well, Europe can't stop them from leaving. Wouldn't be very nice to do it that way, but the rosters aren't "locked" from the NHL's perspective.

    Noone knows exactly how long Mario has been talking to key members of the PA. Just because he decided to clear up why he was in Toronto to squash any rumors, doesn't mean he hasn't been speaking with members for a while.

    It's in Goodenow's interest to have dullards in influential union positions; it's easier to brainwash guys without brains. He's succeeded masterfully.

    Village idiot or not, he's been one of the best enforcers in the game over the last 10 or 15 years. To boot, he's actually got some skills to play too!

    In addition, he was one of the most popular guys here in Winnipeg in and out of the locker room. I'm sure it's the same in Toronto. As a result, he probably ends up doing alot of charity work that involves other NHL'ers.

    Combine the two, and he probably has a whole lot more respect throughout the league then most NHLers........

    What does popularity or charity work have to do with this issue?

    Tie Domi? :help:

    Tie Domi is influential in the union :lol

    My dad was in a union and most of the union leadership could not screw in a lightbulb without directions but they were influential.If they saw any non-union labor on the premises,they became very influential ;)

    Domi must be head of the NHLPA Gestapo.He can be very influential when it comes to cracking open a skull or breaking someone's legs

    None of the members of the NHLPA with the exception of maybe a few are well educated, no reason to pick on Tie.

    If the NHLPA is run by idiots as you claim, then what does that say about billionaire NHL owners who the NHLPA keeps owning in talks time and time again?

    I didn't say that they are idiots, I said that they are uneducated.

    Anyway, taking the position of "I am going to stand here and not move until you move" works sometimes but doesn't require intellectual brilliance.

    If by owning in talks, means players making immature remarks about Bettman, their salaries, and owners not telling the truth, then I guess I'm with you. Other than that I've never been witness to the NHL getting owned by the NHLPA.
