    A wide variety of topics are touched upon, so an interesting read.

    Meh. It wasn't that interesting, he didn't have a lot to say. Pretty much just "too soon, too soon, I don't know enough about hockey's business side yet, give me some time, too soon". All absolutely reasonable and correct answers... but not particularly interesting.

    Oh, okay, Ike. Getting cold up there in the tundra? :laugh:


    Sometimes we just find stuff that's relevant to this board and post it. Not all of it will be as entertaining as when Gary is interviewed. :naughty:

    It's only boring because Fehr won't tell us his real plans. It's all lies, he knows what he wants! He's just trying to be Mr. Teflon.











    Quick question, do I need a sarcasm smilie?

    Interesting. Re-confirms my initial assessment that he's likely to be low key & conciliatory, more concerned with structure & procedure as opposed to militancy. Very much "interim". Nothing to Fehr. Intellectual approach. Overstuffed. Like a Lazy Boy...
