My issue with him isn't so much his willingness to play hardball so much as how effective his tactics are in the long run. My interests are in the long term health of the game. Hockey isn't baseball. It's much more fragile.
The players have been serious about addressing the long term financial considerations of the league, they aren't trying to bankrupt them. It's hard to argue that Fehr's "tactics" don't work given the results he has achieved.
