Charles Pierce on Donald Fehr and the NHL lockout: So, when the NHL players turned to [Fehr], everyone on both sides knew they were hiring a wartime consigliere. The players came out of the last lockout with such impeccably clean clocks that it's a wonder they didn't hire someone with an RPG launcher this time around. Fehr's hiring should have come as a surprise to approximately nobody, since a lockout is always a deliberate tactic by management aimed at achieving a precise goal in this case, clawing back what little was left after the last time Bettman fastened on this strategy.

Love Charles Pierce. This lockout is just so unbelievable. You literally would not believe it if it were in a work of fiction.
