Enforcer on Ice and at Negotiating Table
Jeff Z. Klein, New York Times (12/10/12)
"I guess I have these things brimming at the top of my brain," Westgarth said Saturday during a phone interview in which he shared detailed explanations of pension benefits and contract term limits. "My wife is fed up with me talking about this."
Westgarth and several other players on the negotiating team spent the weekend filling in their fellow union members on what happened at last week's talks in New York, which ended with Commissioner Gary Bettman angrily rejecting the union’s offer and pulling the league’s offers off the table.
