NHLPA's Goddenow's Gone

Fri Jul 29, 2005 2:17 am

I am usually pro union, but in this case, I have to say, good fu$!*n riddance. This guy has been the lead in all 3 disputes that led to shutdowns/lockouts since 1992. If he was open to a salary cap from the begining, but just put a high number on it (like 60 millon) and negotiated down from there, then there proably would have been a season last year.
On a side bar, I feel lucky that the players accepted a hard cap. Why did they not try to get a "soft cap" where teams would be allowed to go over it by a certain number to resign their own free agents?....Oh well, they are back, but should have agreed to a 3 year deal.

He definitely overstayed his welcome by at least a year.

Hi Wobbles,

Not to be a prick but this was mentioned in the other NHL thread.  Smile

I to am glad he is gone. Mr. Saskin is a better appointment IMHO.

Thank God.

Goodenow kept telling the palyers they would never take a cap...now all he has done is get them less money than they would have recieved back in February. Bettman and the owners sat on a $300 million reserve and waited. Goodenow lost, Bettman won.

Therefore, Goodenow=fired.
This is the Last Stop.

Yoo, Yoo, I realized that, but I wasn't sure if I would get reaction by adding to that thread since the title did not address Goodenow....thanks though...

Good riddance. Now Bettman needs to step aside too.

This is a moment of total rebirth for the NHL, and they need a new commissioner as well. I don't believe Bettman can be effective anymore.

Your 100% right in starting a new thread. I was going to start one after hearing the news coming back from lunch. You beat me to it !!

In all fairness to the former NHLPA head, he had told the players that it would take time for them to achieve their goals. One to two years was his estimate. The "players" could only last for one year.

I still think that "hockey" people should be at the head of the NHLPA and the Ownership. Lawyers are secondary.

It is about time!!!!!!

He has never helped the players in any way IMO. He made it so they aren't gonna make as much money as they could have if he would have told the players to vote for the proposal the NHL made in February. The next step is to have Bettman resign. That would definitely do hockey good to have both of those guys out of the game. Now I just can't wait for the season to start.

Neither can I. The way the schedule is set up for the BLues it will bring the fans back quick. As I said in the other thread the Blues start off with a home and home against the Red Wings. I can guarantee that will bring fans back with good numbers at least for the first few weeks of the season. LOL.
