That's a nice sentiment.

But does anyone here actually think that Ference would be on the board of a corporation with over $1.5 billion in revenues?

If these guys had such good heads for business, why do they shell out 10% of their salary to their agents?

I think accountability is very important for the union as it is for any major organization, but hiring guys like Buzz Hargrove and Eric Lindros to be the ones responsible for that accountability shows that there are major flaws with the system. When the so-called accountability hinders the chief executive from doing his job, there is clearly not a good balance.
