At the end of the day it's the agents who usually keep the union in check. They more than anyone else were the ones who pulled the rug out from under Goodenowe and the players dutifully followed.

If they were caught by surprise by this move, there is a lot more crap hitting the fan to follow. They have just as much to lose as the players do, and are a much more savvy bunch than the players who make up the NHLPA executive.
Interesting stuff from Burnside - pretty much what I was told as well.

As an agent you have to be careful, your ability to represent players is dependant upon your NHLPA certification since without that you are hooped.
