San Jose mayor sends letter to NHL/NHLPA

San Jose mayor Ron Gonzales released a letter Tuesday to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, NHLPA Executive Director Robert W. Goodenow, and Sharks President and CEO Greg Jamison.

Mayor Gonzales wrote on behalf of his city, the people and businesses of downtown San Jose, and NHL fans. He called for the two sides to come to an agreement before more is lost.

The mayor sent copies of the letters to mayors of the other 29 NHL cities, hoping similar pressure can spur an agreement.

Golly! Given his masterful grasp of the obvious, and his ability to be photographed near a fire holding a bucket of water, it's no mystery how this guy became mayor! Good work, Mayor Ron!

:beatup:

I think that letter will be read and sit in Gary Bettman's and Bob Goodenow's in box for a while.

SJ Mayor Gonzales gets a response from the NHL (nothing yet from the NHLPA).

"We're doing everything we can." (Yeah, right.)
