WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THAT NHLPA MERCHANDISE?
During the hockey work stoppage, players routinely wore hats and apparel with the logo of the NHLPA. But now that the season has begun, they "seem to be wearing less NHLPA garb," according to Dave Lueking of the ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH. The Blues' Craig Janney: "We gave them up in the agreement." Blues Player Rep Guy Carbonneau said before players were "paid by the NHLPA. Now, we're paid by the St. Louis Blues" (ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH, 2/12).
