Well that's fine, it just doesn't make any sense, and doesn't explain how he's "using the players." It was the players wanted his help, not him banging down their door.

If we wants more $$$ in the future for his role (I'm sure he's already making astronomical amounts) he better keep up his persona and not back down, or else other unions may view him as a weak 'leader' and gives-in to the other side too easily. "What have you done [for me ] lately... "
He was already Union head of the MLBPA, and came down to the NHLPA. There's no going up.
