I suspect it goes along the line of the GM makes the trades, the players play. Nothing to do with the NHLPA - the players know they can't do a blessed thing either way, so they might as well remain as supportive as possible, in case Comrie *does* come back. Besides, it would also to help Lowe maximise his return in a trade: if a few other Oilers slagged MC publicly, other GMs would have justification to say "he's a dressing room cancer, no Stefan for you, here's a bag of pucks instead".
