So, kind of sounds a lot like the debate that is taking place in division I athletics right now.

Rick Westhead, TSN – Dias told TSN that when he met with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne three weeks ago at Queen’s Park, Wynne brought up the issue of working conditions in junior hockey with him. Dias said Wynne told him she is interested in learning more about whether players get a fair share of the game’s profits.

Flynn’s spokesman Craig MacBride declined to comment.

Wynne’s spokeswoman Zita Astravas said both the premier and Flynn have already met with Dias.

“Discussions covered a wide range of topics,” she said. “Unifor is an important partner and our government looks forward to a positive relationship with labour.”

P.K. Subban is still a restricted free agent without a contract. The Hab’s defenseman isn’t saying anything about his contract negotiations either.

“I’ll answer one question about the negotiation,” Subban told a media scrum at Royal Montreal Golf Club.“It’s been kept pretty quiet the whole time and it’s going to remain that way until a deal is done.” (Brenda, Branswell, Habs Inside/Out)

“As of right now today I’m sitting here and trying to just enjoy the day. Just not thinking about anything,” he said. Apparently, Subban wants to remain a Hab for life.

“Obviously I remain adamant on remaining in Montreal and being a Montreal Canadien, and not just for a long time but hopefully for the rest of my career, and be a lifer there,” Subban told Breakfast Television in Toronto earlier this week. “I really enjoy playing there.” (NHL.COM)

Sunday Tony LaRussa was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Here is the full speech, in case you missed it:

Some takeaways:

+ LaRussa went full LaRussa. On a day when every other speech was scripted and meticulously planned, TLR decided to go off-the-cuff (with some notes). Compared to Frank Thomas’ speech, TLR’s sounds more like a press conference where their aren’t any reporters asking questions.

+ Rick Hummel of the Post-Dispatch wrote that LaRussa then proceeded to chastise himself after the speech for not mentioning 2 people: Roland Hemond, the Chicago White Sox GM who hired him as a 1st time manager, and Red Schoendienst.

+ “Because of the animals and other commitments at home, Bianca and Devon (his daughters) are not here. That does not make me happy.” It’s none of our business – truly – but that’s a weird situation and weird line to put in something that LaRussa knows is recorded for posterity.
