Chris Phillips thinks Mark Recchi is “uninformed” about labor situation

Mark Recchi speaking his mind about the players needing to settle with the NHL now and take their most recent offer isn’t sitting well.

Ken Warren from Senators Extra hears it from Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips that Recchi doesn’t seem to know what he’s talking about.

“I guess I would say it’s an uninformed answer, unless he’s now tied in with ownership somewhere or wants to get involved with ownership and trying to take that side,” said Phillips, the Senators player representative. “Unless you’re on the calls and know what’s going on all the time, I don’t know what those comments are based on. Because he’s not involved.”

First it was Recchi being criticized for his take on concussions and now this. Going from a doctor to a lawyer is rough.

For what it’s worth, Phillips has had an active role in CBA negotiations and he’s clearly protective over what the players are trying to do, but Recchi isn’t the only former player encouraging the current players to get a deal done ASAP.
