Duhatschek calls it a palace coup, a pure power struggle:

In one corner of this fight, you'll find Lindros – who currently has no official standing in the organization – plus his replacement as “interim ombudsman”, Buzz Hargrove, along with Halifax labour lawyer Ron Pink, and lawyer Ian Penny, a holdover from the Goodenow era who'd received a lucrative multi-year contract extension from the NHLPA executive board during last June's meetings in Las Vegas

The Lindros family, Buzz Hargrove, some labour lawyer who lost out to Kelly
and Ian Penny, a "holdover from the Goodneow era who received a lucrative multi
year contract".

There we have it folks, a power struggle ...there is money to be made, all you need is a bunch of old style union types and others on the take.

Kelly had too much integrity and class evidently.
