Actually, there are worse people than Glenn Healy to serve as director of player affairs for the NHLPA. Given the association’s track record (see: Eagleson, Alan; Saskin, Ted) it’s safe to assume they interviewed all of them.
So what does this mean to those of us who make less than $1.1 million per annum and still use wooden sticks? Well, presumably a guy can’t represent the players whilst trashing them as enthusiastically as Healy has been known to as a commentator for TSN.
Which is too bad. The guy was starting to grow on us.
