    Why the hell are they going to go all the way to Austria? Just because the Worlds are there? Something the NHL or NHLPA have absolutely nothing to do with?

    Maybe Bettman and Goodenow are both hockey fans after all and want to watch the games.

    Well the players belong to the PA, so I can see how the PA would be there... not sure about the League.

    I love how congress is going to interrupt talks so they continue with their dog and pony show on steroids... yes, that's the most pressing thing in hockey right now.

    Isn't it amazing that on April 19th, we heard that the two sides had agreed to begin "a more aggressive meeting schedule." It is now May 2nd, and they've yet to hold another meeting, and won't until late this week.

    The only thing that will amaze me at this point, is a deal actually getting done.

    Not sure about the league .!!!!!.

    You don't think that finding some good replacement players for the NHL in this tourney from Slovenia and Ukraine, is on the agenda ??

    Or maybe just maybe they have some business and discussions with the IIHF planned concerning future world championships and olympics.

    This lockout affects everything hockey at a pro level, since the NHL has the best players in the world.

    I am not sure about Bettman but Goodenow certainly is.

    He is a long time fan of the Red Wings having been born in Detroit, Michigan. He played junior hockey in Detroit with Mark and Marty Howe. He turned pro after his NCAA career at Harvard where he was team captain, signing a contract with the Flint Generals of the IHL and played 2 seasons (1974 -1976) before going back for his law degree at the University of Detroit in 1976.

    He started out as a management labour lawyer with Unisys and then became a player agent in partnership with Brian Burke. Brett Hull was one of his clients.

    According to Russ Conway, Goodenow was instrumental in helping to bring Alan Eagleson down as Goodenow and Andy Moog provided Conway with NHLPA documents that would ultimatley lead to the Eagle's criminal convictions in the US and Canada.

    This PA press release brought to you courtesy of Wetcoaster.

    Next Wettie will provide us with the oh so funny "tried to open the puck" story for approx. the 20th time.

    A great example of someone who used to love hockey, then got involved in the money/business side.

    Either that, or a great example of how law school teaches you to be a snake.

    Rubbish, if he was a fan, he would have discussed the CBA years ago when the NHL asked him too. Not wiping out 75% of a season before caving on a cap.
