FWIW (Take it as you will) this was from Damien Cox:

I would ask where Cox got the info (three years later) on the timing of a phone call. It's pretty clear that he was invited in after Kelly was fired. Some like to imply he actually had some direct hand it, which would be odd seeing he was finishing up things with the MLBPA and taking a severance package of $11 million.

The infighting that existed with the NHLPA is well-documented so making it out as something nefarious from Fehr is stretching it a bit, bordering even on something worse.
