Which makes me wonder why vote at all.

If something doesn't happen soon I see the NHLPA getting closer and closer to axing the Fehr brothers. (Would love to see that, actually.)
Can't see that happening. Not with the checks and balances that were put in place after the Goodenow fiasco and then the obtaining of the Fehrs. Lindros and his buddies made moves after Fehr was in the fold to take alot of the power away from the players as a whole and put it in the hands of the 30 team reps. I forget exactly what was given up or how but I know there was a bit. Since those are the closest players to Fehr it's very unlikely that they would get anywhere near the votes needed to get rid of the brothers Fehr.
