Steve Fehr (brother of Don) rules himself out for NHLPA leader

Quote:

But the younger Fehr told the Ottawa Citizen on Monday “it’s not very likely” he’ll be the next union director, adding he doesn’t believe Don has any intentions to make the move to basketball.
Fehr stated that the NHLPA's concern with current proposed realignment is the unbalanced conferences (uneven access to playoffs), knows of no hard deadline, but hopes to have this resolved sooner than later.

Steve (Fehr) and Bill Daly had a good working relationship during these past CBA negotiations. Though it's possible they were just assuming the roles of Good Cops to Don and Gary's Terrible No Good Very Bad Cops. I wouldn't have minded Steve taking over the leadership role of the NHLPA.

I think it was Fay Vincent (could be wrong) who was the one who mentioned that Steve was a good guy and often acted as the middle man for his brother and that when they got stuck on some subjects, it would be Steve and the baseball equivalent of Daly who would discuss suff and get things moving
