Les Alexander made some public comments to the Houston Chronicle during the last Lockout

Those statements are the most recent I've seen concerning Alexander and the NHL.

I think it's quite telling that his name has never come up in any of the post lockout soap operas (Pittsburgh, Nashville, Phoenix, etc).

Even when Mario visited Houston, it was on behest of the Houston politicos - AIUI, Alexander was not invloved.
