1) media have to sell papers / page views / etc., they'll talk to anyone who'll talk.
2) he can speak freely without being labeled as part of a faction within the existing NHLPA.
3) He's my age. Therefore, his perspective on these issues rings far truer to me, than say, Sidney Crosby's.
4) and I hated him as a player, too, just like Beechsack.
His stint with the Flyers, his Cup with the 'Canes, then, a couple years later the playoff ouster of the Sabres while a Bruin. I'll be damn happy, though, if Stafford (lost cause) or Foligno (Episode 4 A New Hope) could play Recchi's style of game.
