    OK..

    So we all have had our fill of Bob and Gary....

    So, if you got to pick.. who would you replace them with?

    I would put Mr. Daly at the head of the NHL.... he has seemed to be the most respectable player in the CBA negotation process... and I have no doubt that he would have gotten a deal done by January at the latest, if not before the season started.....I am sure he would be a common pick for alot of people.

    If I were the PA, I would try my hardest to pull
    Pierre Lacroix out of Denver... He has been a players agent in the past...Runs a team where everybody gets paid well and the team typically turns a small profit or breaks even...can swing big and small deals needed to fix problems.. Has good communication with many NHL owners/gms...

    Just think if it had been Daly and Lacroix vs Bettman and Goodenow...

    Honestly, can we say if we replace Bettman with Daly we'd have deal. If you replaced Bettman why would Goodenow suddenly accept linkage of or $42.5m cap? Bettman is carrying the owners offers to the Goodenow. We'd have to replace the majority of owners.

    NHL:Mario Lemiux - honestly who knows the bussiness of hockey better? Like him or hate him you must admit he knows the bussiness. He took a crumbles bank rupt franchise and turned it around. Even had a final four season (eliminated by NJ in the semifianals). He managed to make money all the way up to the past season. One of which was rebuild. He's done everything he can for the NHL when it comes to the penguins and landing a new arena. You cannot blame him for losing alot of what the team had by sacrificing jagr,mkovalev, etc. He knows what it takes to manage in the sport of hockey. Also he just has pure klove for the game somthing bettman dosnt.

    NHLPA:Wayne Gretzky - Again who knows the game better. He understands both sides of the game. He would be a reasonable man and do whats best for the sport as his counterpart mario.

    It would also be great because these guys can degginantly discuss with each other and I really believe they would try to do the best thing for the sport. I guarantee if they lead the whole thing we would have ahad a season and very good setup to it may i add.

    Give me Paul Tagliabue for the Commish, and Alan Eagleson for the PA.

    At least the league ran well when Eagleson was running things.
