    How long do you think it will take before a players union is started in the wha?

    There is already a players union called the PHPA (Professional Hockey Players Assoc.) that covers the AHL, ECHL, etc., so I'd assume it would also cover the WHA once it gets underway.

    The NHLPA, with a stroke of a pen and a show of hands, could easily set up NHLPA Local 2.

    There's not much Peter Young could do to stop it.

    the nhlpa is the both the biggest opportunity for the wha and the biggest obstical.

    how can nhlpa members say they will accept no salary cap of any kind for any reason, then sign a contract with a league that is already based on a very low salary cap??
