A strong contingent of player agents was to meet today to discuss the NHL lockout with Bob Goodenow, executive director of the players association.
What the agents expect from Goodenow is an update on what the players told him at their meeting earlier this month in Toronto, and whether the union is prepared to modify its last offer from Sept. 9.
At the same time, this is a chance for the agents -- who are losing their cut on player contracts not being paid out this season -- to confront Goodenow.
"I don't think Bob has forgotten that, as agents, all our clients confide their deepest thoughts to us," Curran said. "I like to think Bob recognizes that (the union) better address the players' concerns now."
"The only way we'll see a resolution, and it might sound naive, but we have to get engaged again," agent Don Meehan told ESPN. " . . . Not being engaged makes no sense."
Several agents said they expect Goodenow to be firm in telling them to keep their thoughts to themselves and not undermine the union's efforts.
