How else do members of the union get things done? It's pretty obvious given the treatment of others who express a dissenting opinion get treated and what is insinuated of there treatment once hockey is back on the ice. The only way to insulate themselves is to get their representatives involved in the process. That's the agents. now of course an agent doesn't have to do it but I suspect many would.

Remember the whole dissolving of the union thing impacts the agent profession as without the NHLPA there is no policing/sanctioning of the agencies and agents.
