The NHLPA is Starting To Come Under Fire Again

The NHLPA union representatives are starting to come under fire as they have a start of the season conference call. Many of the 750 players in the NHLPA are starting to come to realization that former NHLPA head Paul Kelly was unfairly dismissed.

According to Kevin Paul Dumont of the Boston Globe:

It’s possible, according to player sources, that one or more NHLPA members will insist on an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of not only the process that led to Kelly’s dismissal but also of those who perpetrated it. Clearly, some players are finally waking up to smell the reality that, as one veteran told me last week, "Paul got sewered.’’

This whole situation with the NHLPA has left a black eye on the union and many of the player representatives. An independent investigation, if done correctly, could reestablish some credibility to the union and might possiblyeliminate many of the issues that have plagued the union before the lockout.
