NHL in crisis

Recommended Posts

The Ice Maintenence Workers Union, which represents NHL Zamboni drivers, is planning to fight back against plans that would see those drivers replaced by players from the Toronto Maple Leafs roster. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has proposed that the Zamboni drivers replace the players, but that is not sitting well with them. "It's all about respect," said driver Sam Williamson, "How will I be able to go home and look my family in the face? My son's friends at school idolize him because of my job, now I'll have to worry about him getting bullied."

 

As of yet no strike has been planned, but union sources indicate that job action could include using washroom urinal outflow in the maintenance process. "We feel it's appropriate, given the piss-poor way the Leafs have been playing lately", said the source, who doesn't want to be named.

He did have an advantage facing the Leafs since he has practices with them.

All in all, really cool though!
