Goodenow Gone Now

Bob Goodenow is stepping down from his position as Executive Director and General Counsel.

"With the conclusion of the negotiations and the ratification of the new agreement, the parties concur that this is an appropriate action for the future," said Goodenow. "I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the Players over the past 15 years and to have had the support of a tremendous staff at the NHLPA. I wish the Players every success under the new CBA."

No details yet on exactly what went down, but it's no surprise that Goodenow is on his way out. Bob gambled and lost, big time. Good riddance I say. Ted Saskin will take over Goodenow's job, hopefully he will be better for the game as the NHL and NHLPA enter the new "partnership" era.
