  1. Doesn’t get anymore clueless than this. Whoever this @courtneyszto is should learn how to read articles before posting and commenting on them. The Toronto Star article he mentions “The CHL labour dispute just got more complicated with the OHL claiming that the players association broke labour laws by attempting to unionize its players. [Toronto Star]” …This is completely false. The article is not about the OHL taking the players’ association to the Labour board, it’s about the players’ association taking the OHL to the labour board for unfair labour practices, not the other way around. It’s fascinating how this could be interpreted any other way.
