On a side note last I checked Lafontaine doesn't play for the Islanders.
You're right, sorry, the Player-Owner distinction still belongs to Mario Lemieux, the greatest hockey player that has ever lived. Lafontaine is late to the party!
Guess who threw a fit when Lemieux finally got in? The NHLPA. Owners loved it - CBA is conclusively becoming transparent as being entirely on Don Fehr's shoulders.
