OK so why is it that he becomes the key note speaker, should it not be a negotiating team member? I would expect that with his apparent close involvement he should be on the committee, why does he do more talking, feedback to the press than the negotiators?

Given that some members opted for Europe and others stay silent and all teams are not represented it would seem that this committee is simply a face of the "average" player rather than the true power players of the NHLPA, the upper echelon, who are driving this. Most of these guys say nothing, yet guys who are not on the committee have much to say about everything and many of those speaking are the "elite".
