HAVE NO FEHR: NHLPA Exec Dir DONALD FEHR does not have any current plans to leave the hockey union and rejoin the MLBPA, a source familiar with the situation said on Friday. A Yahoo Sports report stated MLBPA officials have discussed the possibility of Fehr, who was MLBPA Exec Dir for more than 25 years, returning to the baseball union. Fehr's successor, MLBPA Exec Dir MICHAEL WEINER, is currently battling brain cancer. "No doubt, if contingency plans are being considered by the MLBPA, it isn’t a surprise that Don’s name would come up as part of the conversation," the source said. "Don of course has strong ties to the MLBPA having spent many, many years at the MLBPA. And, if he was asked to consult and/or advise the players during a difficult period, he would certainly do so. But he is not looking to leave his ED position with the NHLPA." An MLBPA spokesperson declined comment (Liz Mullen, Staff Writer).
