You open yourself to that criticism if you parade around your record revenues in the middle of recessions and choose not to give the whole story. The point was that the last CBA - was by the owners' own admission - foolproof. 8 years later, they still have most of the same markets in dire straits, but it's still the players that are the problem. He also doesn't talk much during the CBA talks that they've owned one team for 4 years because no one wants to own it.

Having been an executive director for the union of a major pro sports league is enough of a resume for any other union he'd want to ever work for.

Which is why NHL players hired him.
