NHLPA names advisory board

The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) announced today that Ken Baumgartner, George Cohen, Buzz Hargrove, Steve Larmer, Ron Lloyd, Dan O’Neill, Ron Pink and Ian Troop have been appointed by the NHLPA’s Executive Board as the inaugural members of the Advisory Board of Directors.

The formation of the Advisory Board completes the NHLPA’s organizational re-structure which was revised under terms of the NHLPA’s new constitution. The Executive Board, which is comprised of the 30 club player representatives, appointed the members of the Advisory Board after giving special consideration to individuals with relevant expertise. The Advisory Board will offer guidance on various matters that reflect the Board members’ areas of expertise.
Some interesting names in the group there. It's good to see Larmer back on board with the NHLPA after he left under less than ideal terms during Ted Saskin's reign.

Larmer is the perfect guy for the NHLPA... disappointing to see the way he left before. It was pretty ugly, you could tell in his interviews how disappointed he was. Larmer isn't the kinda guy to cry over spilled milk, so whenever you see a guy have concerns about the current state of things - it's for a reason.

So will Hargrove be responsible for lobbying the government to complain about unfair foreign competition and coming up with intimidating and snazzy little slogans like "out of a job yet...keep buying foreign."
Will he rail on fans for cheering for non North American players?

Owners have been great at extorting public subsidies for their arenas.

With Buzzard on board, maybe the players are planning a similar strategy.
