You missed the point. Players complained publicly about Linden and the PA. The myth of a huge silent majority is just that: a myth.
Fehr was hired by the players. They knew they were getting a hardliner when they hired him. You can forget the argument that Fehr has taken over the NHLPA. The players wanted him and the players got him, for better or worse.
