Pretty pathetic.

I can't think of a single advantage that having Donald Fehr involved has brought to the NHLPA. They would have been much better off with Kelly.
I wouldn't give GB the credit on that. I believe he did that to work over the players emotionaly and pull the plug, thus making the players cave and not ask for anything back because they expected to lace 'em up. Things went well but if there is another snag all GB has to do now is say here is our final offer, take it or leave it. The players will take it because they are emotional. Their wives are emotional.
